(CT) - LightSpeed VCT Series
Volume coverage, not slices, changes the way anatomy is imaged and how studies are performed. The LightSpeed VCT Series of scanners combine superior resolution with outstanding coverage making the imaging of difficult patients or procedures more routine.

Recently, an upgrade was made to the hospital’s GE VCT scanner.  A product called ASiR (Adaptive Statistical Iterative Reconstruction), one of the newest and most innovative GE products, was installed. It significantly reduces radiation dose to patients, while still maintaining excellent image quality and detail. This machine can now provide as much as a 40 percent radiation dose reduction as compared to other CT models. Typically, other methods for radiation dose reduction in CT can cause an increase in noise and image deterioration. But GE’s industry-breakthrough ASiR product solves this by subtracting noise altogether, not merely masking it. As a result, patient dose is reduced without compromising image quality.

(Radiography/Fluoroscopy) - Precision 500D Digital
In a busy hospital environment, the Precision™ 500D digital radiography and fluoroscopy (R & F) system delivers premium images automatically. GE Healthcare takes the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle to another level with dose conservation tools. The AutoEx™ intelligent dose management system automatically optimizes techniques for clear imaging without overexposure.

Exams performed in our Fluoroscopy Room:
Esophagram -test with contrast (typically Barium) done to inspect the functioning of esophagus
Upper GI - test with contrast (typically Barium) done to inspect the functioning of the esophagus & the stomach
Small Bowel Follow Through- test with contrast (typically Barium) done to inspect the functioning Small Bowel
Barium Enema - test with contrast (typically Barium) done to inspect the functioning of the Large Bowel
Intravenous Pyleogram (IVP) -  x-ray exam that uses an injection of contrast material to evaluate your kidneys, ureters and bladder
Arthrogram - a test where contrast media is injected directly into a joint for evaluation, usually done in conjunction with CT or MR
Video Barium Swallow with Speech Therapist - test done by the Speech Therapist using different foods & types of Barium to evaluate a patient’s ability to swallow safely and effectively
