Today's medical imagery is amazing. And it keeps getting better.
Take for example the 3-D images available from the 64-slice CT scanner at King's Daughters' Health. CTA (Computed Tomography - Angiography) scans help physicians evaluate aneurysms, peripheral arterial disease (PAD), and check for blockages or clots in arteries throughout the body including head, neck, and all extremities. CTA evaluations are non-invasive and enable radiologists and other physicians to look at the vessels in 3-D.
Calcium Scoring (Cardiac CT) is a technique that allows physicians to look at the coronary arteries around the heart to look for calcium deposits that might indicate coronary artery (heart) disease. Calcium deposits are scored for severity and can help determine a patient's risk for developing cardiovascular disease.
Additional uses include 3-D bone images that provide a detailed look at fractures. This can aid orthopedic physicians with fracture care and potential surgery.
Appointments can be made directly through the local physician's office. Images and test results are fully digital. Because CT images are non-invasive, test time and recovery for patients is minimal.
