Computed Tomography, CT, uses x-rays to produce detailed pictures of structures inside the body. A CT scanner directs a series of x-ray pulses through the body. Each pulse lasts only a fraction of a second and represents a "slice" of the organ or area being studied.
Southwest Louisiana Imaging offers the state of the art Sensation 64 from Siemens Medical Solutions. Our CT systems allows us to obtain up to 64 slices per rotation with a level of detail, sharpness and clarity previously unachievable with CT. Imaging of this quality and speed gives our physicians the opportunity to study human anatomy at a remarkable level.
The CT technology available at Southwest Louisiana Imaging includes:
- Abdominal Imaging
- Coronary with Calcium Scoring
