64 Slice Computerized Tomography

The 64-slice CT scanner is even more powerful than a regular Computerized Tomography (CT) scan, in that it captures up to 64 simultaneous anatomical slices of 0.5 mm in a single rotation. With this equipment, even precise images of rapidly moving organs like the heart and lungs are possible. It is also proving revolutionary in helping examine patients who can't hold their breath, such as trauma victims, young children or the extremely ill.
