Fast computerized tomography with low dose of radiation
Flash CT is a highly technological radiological diagnostic tool which allows whole body imaging particularly for cardiac and pulmonary screening purposes, in less than 4 seconds, using 80% less radiation. The Flash CT can perform a cardiac angiography scan in 0.25 seconds, protecting the patient from excess radiation during scanning. A scan of the chest cavity takes about 0.6 seconds to complete, and the patients no longer need to hold their breath.
With a diameter of 78cm., the Flash CT is ideal for patients with claustrophobia or obese patients. Rapid imaging capability of the Flash CT allows quick scanning of pediatric patients and trauma patients, helping with timely intervention.
