CT Scan

We offer a NewTom 5G CT scanning.

Traditional CT scans generate image slices one at a time by producing a fan-like beam of radiation. The fan beam must circle around the patient repeatedly to generate all the slices needed to create a full image.

The Cone Beam CT, on the other hand, creates a three-dimensional, cone-shaped beam that only has to circle the patient once to generate an image of th entire area.

The benefits are many, from exposing pets to far less radiation to generating images in far less time — in the case of the NewTom 5G, a mere 18 seconds. The images generated by a Cone Beam contain huge, helpful data sets that include both traditional and three-dimensional images.

360-degree rotation increases the range of possibilities for image manipulation — from the inside out.

Clinical indications for NewTom 5G may include:

  • Acute trauma

  • Skeletal studies

  • Nasal/sinus disease

  • Musculoskeletal soft tissue tumors

  • Spinal scan

  • Thoracic

  • Lung masses

  • Abdominal scan

  • Brain scan
