CT Scans at Frisbie Memorial Hospital
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 Memorial Hospital was first in all North America to install the GE Optima CT660 128-slice scanner, which features GE's ASiR radiation dose reduction system, allowing us to provide the safest, lowest radiation dose of available CT scans - a 40% radiation dose reduction.
In addition to the GE Optima CT660, Frisbie Memorial's 16-slice GE Lightspeed CT scanner is equipped with CT Fluoro to accommodate biopsies, which can be performed in less than one hour.
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.
