64-slice Computer Tomography (CT) Scanner Among the most sophisticated technology available, this scanner creates images of internal organs, tissues and bones. In just seconds, this advanced technology can make a complete scan of your entire body — or produce detailed views of a targeted area, such as the brain or heart. Physicians can view the individual images (called “slices”) for specific detail. Or they can assemble the images to create a 3-D view of an organ. The result often is a faster, more precise diagnosis.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) This equipment relies on a combination of radio waves, computer technology and a strong magnetic field to produce high-definition, 3-D images of internal organs and structures. Physicians order MRIs to diagnose a wide range of conditions, from cancer, heart and vascular disease, to strokes and joint/muscle disorders.
