CT Scan - Computed Tomography
Our GE CTi is a single slice, high speed (subsecond) CT machine. It has a large x-ray tube that dissipates heat faster than the typical tubes. Computed tomography creates cross sectional x-ray images, or slices, that are 90 degrees from the center-line of the CT scanner couch. The sequence of slices can be reconstructed into thinner images for higher resolution and accuracy. Sequences can also be reformatted into different planes like saggital or coronal.
