CAT Scan Services
Computed axial tomography (CAT) is a radiographic tool that allows the
doctors to visualize internal structures within the human body. Physicians
use CAT scanning to diagnose head and spine injuries, lung and liver disease,
cancer, tumors, blood clots, internal bleeding and other diseases and
illnesses, as well as the ability to perform several interventional procedures,
such as biopsies and drainages.
Saint John Hospital has joined the ranks of the country's premier health
care providers that offer patients access to the most advanced 64-slice
CT scanner available. The Siemens definition 64 slice CT scanner provides
high image quality while reducing the exposure dose to the patient. With
the speed and accuracy of this scanning technology, Saint John provides
increased patient comfort by significantly reducing patient examination times .
The Siemens definition 64 slice CT scanner is not only faster than other
systems, it can also provide clearer, better, 3-D pictures of anatomical
structures. When radiologists can see what's inside better, they make
more accurate diagnoses.
