64 Slice Volume CT Scanner

The LightSpeed VCT allows physicians to detect heart disease by performing cardiac calcium scoring and coronary angiography to identify buildup of calcium in the walls of the coronary arteries. In seconds, the state-of-the-art 64-slice scanner can produce an image of a patient’s coronary arteries and the calcium that may lie inside. Additionally, the scanner produces a picture indicating future risk for heart disease.

  • Faster than any other CT scanner on the market today
  • Allows patients to be imaged in no more than five to ten seconds
  • Physicians are better able to detect a wide range of disease entities including cardiovascular disease, metastatic cancer, appendicitis, decreased blood flow to the brain, and renal stones as small as 1-2 mm in size
