What is a Cardiac CT ?

Cardiac CT is a high speed imaging of the heart by using 64 slice volume CT scanner (VCT). The VCT is a breakthrough in investigative technology. The hallmark of this imaging system is the new V-Res(+TM) detector with its ability to deliver wide anatomical coverage and high resolution, simultaneously.

What does it do ?

In Cardiac imaging, speed is the key. The VCT has the ability to image the entire heart in just five beats offering fantastic accuracy and minimum breath hold. Other multi-slice cardiac scanners require you to hold your breath for at least 10-15 seconds, causing beat-to-beat variations. The light speed VCT can take 64 slices of 0.625 mm. thickness, and is capable of covering 4 cm. in one rotation lasting just 0.33 see. Its unprecedented speed allows clinicians to capture whole organs in a second, the heart in five beats, or head-to-toe in under ten seconds.
