Siemens Sensation 64 Slice CT
This Siemens Sensation 64 Slice CT is the world’s fastest and most accurate computer tomography (CT) scanner. The machine makes use of the newly developed z-Sharp technology, which combines the rapid movement of the X-ray source in the Straton tube with a 64-channel Ultra Fast Ceramic (UFC) detector design. This enables the scanning of twice as many “slices” per rotation and substantially improves the spatial quality and image resolution to less than 0.4 millimeters, which means that even very small tissue structures can be displayed in super-fine detail. The machine’s gantry rotates around the patient in only 0.33 seconds while scanning 64 slices – fast enough for the CT to image even the most minute details in moving organs like the beating heart. A complete heart scan takes less than ten seconds, which is much faster than with conventional scanners. In some patients, doctors are able to detect blockages in the coronary arteries without having to insert a diagnostic catheter.
