Low-Dose Computed Tomography (CT)

Wesley’s Discovery CT750 HD scanner offers the world’s best high-definition, low-dose CT technology. The 128-slice imaging creates sharper, more detailed images and reduces the radiation dose by 83 percent on cardiac scans and 50 percent across the rest of the body, compared to predecessor CT system.

The scanner’s Gemstone technology delivers a high definition cardiac image which allows physicians to detect heart disease using non-invasive procedures. Enhanced pictures of the coronary arteries and the opportunity to look at each section of the heart individually can help identify potential heart attack victims.

The low-dose technology is beneficial for pediatric patients suffering from chronic conditions as it significantly reduces radiation exposure during CT and fluoroscopy procedures. Wesley has the only two board-certified pediatric radiologists in the region.
