How is a 64-slice CT different?
64-slice CT scanners rotate around the body, capturing as many as 64 images, or slices, of the body or a specific organ simultaneously. Scanning an organ takes about 5 seconds; even a full body scan only 30 seconds. St. Joseph’s unit significantly reduces radiation exposure while maintaining image quality. For the sensitive tissues of children or for anyone who requires multiple and frequent scans, these are great benefits.
