Sibu Specialist Medical Centre performs CT scanning with a Toshiba Aquiliion 64. This is a "64 slice" CT scanner with additional features that facilitate scanning of the heart in what is known as "Coronary CT angiography"- a faster, less invasive way to examine the coronary arteries for certain individuals.
Unlike other imaging methods, CT scanning offers detailed views of wide range of tissue types, including the solid organs of the abdomen, lungs, bones, soft tissues, and blood vessels.
It is a relative cost-effective imaging tool for a wide range of clinical problems. They are useful in trauma settings as they can reveal internal injuries and bleeding quickly to help save lives.
