CAT Scan Imaging
CapRock has full CAT scan imaging capability at both our hospital and 24-Hour Emergency Center. These scans significantly improve diagnostic capabilities by providing images of internal organs in amazing detail. Our CT scanners are some of the most advanced technology available, which allows us to get the highest quality studies with the lowest radiation exposure. Additionally, the CT at our hospital can perform coronary artery imaging, which often eliminates the need for cardiac stress testing or cardiac catheterization, and reduces time in the hospital.
Regarding CT Imaging vs. Radiation:
“The balance of image quality and radiation dose is the fundamental challenge for physicians in performing routine clinical examinations while adhering to the ALARA principle. With the integration of AIDR 3D* into Exposure controls, the radiation exposure is automatically reduced before the scan ensuring the lowest dose is given for the diagnostic task at hand, no matter what the size or shape of the patient.”
