Prime CT Scanner

State-of-the-Art Diagnostic Imaging in the Illinois Valley

At IVCH, we know the details matter which is why we perform CT scans with the Toshiba Aquilion PRIME. This cutting-edge CT scanner enables our radiologists to find more subtle abnormalities in the body.

A major advantage of the 160-slice CT scanner is that it can perform two exams at one time. This helps improve interpretation of both studies. Previously, patients had to undergo separate exams to produce individual data sets. This could produce conflicting results – a situation that is now avoided with IVCH’s Prime CT Scanner.

Benefits of CT Scanning

With earlier and more accurate diagnostic information, physicians can plan treatment more effectively. The improved images can also help physicians give advice to patients about foregoing unnecessary surgery while improving planning for surgery that is needed.

Benefits of the Prime CT Scanner include:

  • Reduced radiation with Toshiba’s latest dose reduction technology
  • Four times faster image results
  • A larger opening for greater patient comfort
  • 660-pound table weight capacity
  • Supreme image quality for more precise diagnoses
