Abdominal Imaging

Specialists in the Computed Tomography Division conduct CT studies of the chest, abdomen and pelvis, performing CT angiography, CT arterial portography and image-guided biopsy studies. The division's equipment consists of two state-of-the-art General Electric slip ring helical CT scanners and a Siemens Evolution electron beam CT system.

The Body CT Section offers state-of-the-art, multi-detector CT imaging for all clinical indications within the abdomen and pelvis. The service oversees the smooth and safe operation of the modality in the performance of examinations pertaining to neuroradiology, thoracic, cardiovascular, and musculoskeletal radiology. It also coordinates the availability of the scanners in the performance of CT-guided procedures by members of the departmental staff.

Over the last four years, the section has extensively upgraded its equipment and facilities. Aggressive recruitment of technical personnel has resulted in the addition of excellent new technologists, who complement the core of well-trained and capable veterans.
