A CT scan, also known as a computed tomography scan, is a medical imaging technique that uses specialized X-ray equipment to produce detailed images of the body's internal structures.
During a CT scan, the patient lies on a table that is moved through a circular opening in the scanner, which rotates around the patient and takes multiple X-ray images from different angles. These images are then processed by a computer to create a detailed, cross-sectional view of the body part being scanned.
CT scans can be used to diagnose a wide range of medical conditions, including bone fractures, tumors, blood clots, and infections. They are particularly useful for detecting internal injuries or abnormalities that may not be visible on a standard X-ray.
A 64-slice CT scan is a specific type of CT scan that uses a multi-detector CT scanner to capture 64 images of the body in a single rotation. These images are then combined by computer software to create detailed, 3D images of the body's internal structures.
The term "64-slice" refers to the number of detectors in the CT scanner. Each detector captures a thin slice of the body, and when combined, they create a more detailed and comprehensive image of the area being scanned.
64-slice CT scans are commonly used in diagnostic imaging for a variety of medical conditions, including heart disease, pulmonary embolism, and cancer. They offer faster scanning times and improved image quality compared to older CT scanner technology, making them a valuable tool for diagnosing and monitoring medical conditions. At our Garia Mediplus Clinic we have the highly advanced CT Scan machine 64slice Seimens Somatom Go to provide closer diagnosis with our unique CT Scan Workflow. Benefit from AI-powered scan automation and new clinical features for an even wider range of indications. Avail 64-Slice CT Scan, at Neotia Mediplus, Mahamayatala, Garia.
A 128-slice CT scan is an advanced medical imaging technique that uses a multi-detector CT scanner with 128 rows of detectors to capture detailed images of the body's internal structures.
Like the 64-slice CT scan, the 128-slice CT scan takes multiple images of the body in a single rotation, which are then processed by computer software to create detailed 3D images of the area being scanned. The term "128-slice" refers to the number of detectors in the CT scanner, with each detector capturing a thin slice of the body.
Compared to the 64-slice CT scan, the 128-slice CT scan offers higher spatial resolution, faster scanning times, and improved image quality, allowing for more accurate diagnoses and better visualization of small or complex structures.
128-slice CT scans are used in a variety of medical specialties, including cardiology, oncology, and neurology, and can be particularly useful in detecting small or early-stage cancers, evaluating blood vessels, and assessing cardiovascular disease. You can avail 128-Slice CT Scan facility at our upcoming Neotia Mediplus Clinic at 6, Rawdon Street, Kolkata.
