Computed Tomography (CT) Scanning at Meredyth
We are proud to offer the 64-slice GE LightSpeed VCT computed tomography system. With its dramatically improved images and fastest scan times in the industry, this innovative system allows us to diagnose a whole host of medical conditions faster and more accurately than ever before.
Such conditions include coronary artery disease, cancer, benign tumors, aneurysms, heart disease, lung disease, vascular disease, kidney problems, liver disease, musculoskeletal disorders, and more.
The 64-slice LightSpeed VCT is used for a multitude of applications, including:
- Neurologic Imaging
- Musculoskeletal Imaging
- CT Coronary Angiography (CTA)
- Cardiac Imaging
- Thoracic and Abdominal Imaging
- Cerebral, Renal, and Peripheral Angiography
- Virtual Colonography
- Lung Scans for Tumors and Pulmonary Nodule
Unlike traditional CT systems, the 64-slice system is capable of showing internal structures of the body with substantially greater anatomic detail. This helps our physicians make an accurate diagnosis and may eliminate the need for other procedures, such as coronary angiography, exploratory surgery, and surgical biopsy.
