CT scan

Computed tomography is a diagnostic procedure based on the principle of penetration of x-rays through the tissues of the human body. In contrast to classical radiography, CT implies the execution of many pictures at once with obtaining “slices” and their subsequent layout using software.

The clinic has 2 modern 64-slice computer tomographs by Toshiba and Siemens manufacturers, which allow providing:

  • quick scan with minimal patient exposure;
  • obtaining high-precision images;
  • high level of patient comfort and safety.

Using a tomograph, it is possible to carry out various diagnostic programs, including the study of the dentofacial system, internal organs, heart, blood vessels, skeleton.

General recommendations and research procedures

  • You need to come to the study with a minimum of cosmetics.
  • Temporary tattoos in the field of study must be removed.
  • Underwear (T-shirts, nightgowns, etc.) should be without rhinestones, without appliqués.
  • Before the study with contrast for 2 hours do not eat.
  • It is necessary to bring the previous pictures and descriptions of ultrasound, CT, MRI with you.
  • CT examination time - from 15 to 40 minutes.

Issuance of conclusions is made within 1-2 hours after completion of the study. If necessary, consultations, consultations, expectations of the results of additional research methods - within 24 hours.

Is computed tomography harmful to health

Obviously, like any other radiation diagnostic procedure associated with the use of x-rays, CT implies a certain dose of radiation exposure to the patient's body. The doctor also understands this, therefore, the appointment of a CT scan is always done on the basis of the diagnostician’s information and the patient’s condition, and can determine with certainty the necessity and frequency of prescribing a particular procedure.

Is a CT scan harmful to health? Yes, of course, radiation exposure has a definite effect on the body, but in acceptable doses. At the same time, modern computed tomography equipment is also manufactured based on the principle of minimizing radiation exposure. New technologically advanced tomographs have emitters that are several times lower than the previous generation of x-ray beam power, and the time it is exposed to the body is as limited as possible.

When conducting certain types of computed tomography (CT) studies, the patient needs special training. You can find out more about preparation in the contact center of the clinic.

The Aquilion One Genesis Edition CT scanner used in the K+31 is one of the best in the world. 640 slices are the maximum values available today in diagnostic practice. Thanks to numerous clinical studies and breakthrough technological developments, it was possible to achieve the most clear spatial resolution and conduct studies with a minimum dose of radiation.

AiCE processor is built into CT, which works on the basis of a neural network for the reconstruction of computed tomography images. This method is characterized by deep learning and allows AiCE to make high-quality CT images as quickly as possible with accurate detail and the lowest noise level.

Features of CT scan in K+31:

  • Weak noise.
  • Sharp image.
  • High contrast resolution.
  • Little contrast medium is required.
  • Patient-centric imaging solutions.
  • The clarity of the content of complex protocols.
  • Consistency in delivering quality results.

In one rotation of the detector (a fraction of a second), high-quality images are obtained in both simple and complex examinations: the heart, chest of a newborn, ankle or foot.

Computed tomography in K+31 allows to expand the possibilities in the diagnosis and prevention of various diseases.

Accurate visualization of disease dynamics

Valuable additional information in the form of computed tomography images and added to morphological studies helps to optimize disease surveillance and treatment methods. The most complete perfusion maps are indispensable in the diagnosis and therapeutic response of tumors or strokes. To find out the causes of immobility or pain in joints, dynamic studies carried out on this equipment will be able.

Patient-friendly

The upgraded expanding CT scanner portal has a wide open area to accommodate patients. The large space gives a calming effect, helps the person to relax before exploring.

The design allows staff to easily assist trauma patients and during interventional procedures from both the front of the CT and the back.

With computed tomography in K+31, it is possible to avoid the usual scans planning procedures, since the Aquilion ONE laser collimation allows you to enter the field of view and scan range directly on the portal.

Exact examination angle

The ability to tilt the gantry means choosing an exact scanning angle in any plane and protecting radiosensitive organs from radiation. Image reconstruction technologies are capable of overcoming the complexities of angular scanning, which offers advantages in volumetric and spiral imaging.

The design of the equipment assumes the most comfortable placement of patients for rapid CT examination. There is a possibility of a smooth transition in the process of adjusting the scan parameters designed for examining each area of the body. All this allows three diagnostics to be carried out in one go.

Thanks to the new equipment in K+31, patients are examined faster and with less contrast medium, as well as with a minimum dose of radiation.

I want to express my deep gratitude to Elena Yurievna, I have never met such a doctor in my life. Firstly, a top-class professional, and secondly, a wonderful person. A doctor who loves his profession, and how much warmth and attention comes from it. I was terribly afraid of bowel irrigoscopy, since I had a sad experience of doing it in 1999, I thought about re-examination for a long time, but the colonoscopy under sedation was only 45 cm, so I had to do the irrigoscopy again, 20 years later. Lord, luckily for me, I got to Elena Yuryevna, told everything very competently about the preparation, calmed her down, gave many useful recommendations, showed maximum attention. During the procedure itself, she was very affectionate, she spoke calmly, taught her to breathe correctly, all with a smile. How important it is when the procedure causes a lot of experiences. Everything in the office is very comfortable, a disposable robe, shoe covers, a clean toilet, with everything you need (diaper, wet wipes, soap, toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizer) I had no discomfort. Who will have an irrigoscopy, do not be afraid, the main thing is to get to Elena Yuryevna, with this doctor you will receive only positive results from the procedure. There would be more such doctors in our country, I'm sorry, but so far there are only a few of them! May God grant her health!
