This video, produced for Siemens, is featuring a very cool 64-slice CT scanner: Somatom Sensation.
The 64-slice CT tomography system is considered the latest generation of CT scanners. It provides more detailed information for doctors to use by providing a 3-dimensional computer model of the body, including moving organs like the heart. Doctors say they can better plan surgical procedures or treatments with the 3-dimensional model system than with the 2-dimensional models they previously used. And the exam only takes seconds to perform, meaning patients have to lie still and hold their breaths for less time than with other CT scans. This 3-dimensional technology is providing doctors with the information they need in greater detail than ever before – leading to improved diagnosis and better patient care.
