Low Dose Scanning at a CT Accredited Facility
Low-dose scanning. Compassionate care.
Computerized Tomography (CT) is an X-ray test that generates a detailed view of the anatomy or structure of organs and tissues in the body. The CT scan can show the dimension of vessels, lymph nodes and organ systems.
Frisbie’s Revolution EVO CT scanner is powered by intelligent technology, including its signature clarity imaging system, ASiR-V, designed to help clinicians acquire high-quality images using lower doses of radiation – up to 82 percent less than earlier models – contributing to more confident diagnoses at lower exposures for patients. What’s more, Revolution EVO is designed to deliver more efficient, personalized care allowing for rapid and comprehensive assessments for complex trauma or stroke, as well as making possible high-quality imaging of the whole heart in just five heartbeats, or whole abdomen and pelvic region in as little as three seconds. With Revolution EVO, because high-quality images are acquired in less time, patients can expect a better overall experience with increased comfort due to less time spent on the table.
Frisbie is now using low-dose CT scanning as a follow-up tool for screening colorectal cancer. This procedure does not replace the effective and most reliable colorectal cancer screening tool, which is the colonoscopy, but rather it is utilized as a means to obtain additional images of the colon and rectum.
