Computed tomography is an examination method that uses x-ray radiation. It is a modern examination method that unites ionizing radiation with complex computer technologies. Nearly 1000 images of the organ being examined or a cross-section of the body are collected during the procedure, which are then electronically processed to obtain three-dimensional and two-dimensional images that can be reconstructed on any plane. Computed tomography examination helps to identify, for example, the location and spread of stomach cancer or a brain tumor. A computed tomography scan is a procedure that lasts longer than taking a standard x-ray.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
Multi -layer computed tomography
As opposed to x-ray examination, many images of a body part in cross-section (3D reconstructions) are obtained during computed tomography. To prepare images that are appropriate for the needs ofCyberKnife® procedures, SRC Sigulda collaboration partner – the Health Center 4 branch in the ORTO clinic performs computed tomography (CT) scans with Siemens Somatom Definition AS Computer Tomograph.
The advantages of this computed tomography equipment are an especially large gantry opening (up to 78 cm) and improved lifting capacity of the patient bed, which allows us to also examine larger patients!
● Skull, chest, abdomen organs, spine with and without contrasting agents.
