Computed Topography which is also known as CT Scan is the process of imaging with the use of X-rays and advanced computer technology. It helps to visualise cross-sectional images on any part of the body, horizontally or vertically. The process is digital. It produces a 3D picture of the internal parts of a patient’s body. The images are taken from different angles so that the doctors can visualise the part from each angle to get a better view. Patients suffering from stroke need special care while performing a CT scan. It is not an easy task to perform a CT scan on wheels. Stroke is a long-term disability which eventually leaves a person handicapped. The Portable CT scan machines at Medanta have provided the best solution to all the imaging needs of such a patient.

How Does It Help?

The scan is extremely beneficial to the patients who cannot move from the wheelchair. It avoids the transportation of the patients who are on wheels and are under intensive care unit (ICU).

How Is It Done?

Preparation

Preparing for a CT scan

  • The preparations to be done for a CT scan depend upon the organ to be diagnosed. However, the patient will be asked not to eat or drink anything before a certain amount of time before the procedure.
  • The doctor will ask the patient to remove all the metal objects on the body as it may disrupt or may get attracted by the magnetic field produced. The patient will also be asked to get into a loose gown provided by Medanta.
  • An intravenous dye may be introduced into the body to give a clear contrast in the images.

Treatment

During the CT scan

  • The body will move inside the scanner, the X-Ray machine will rotate around the part and will produce numerous images of thin slices of the body.
  • It is imperative for the patient to let the body be as still as possible so that the doctor can have best quality images without any disturbance.

Post-Treatment

After the CT Scan

After the CT Scan, the doctor will advise the patient to get back to the state in which he/she was before the scan. Usually, it doesn’t interrupt with the on-going treatment but if the patient feels any side effects because of the contrast dye, the same must be conveyed to the doctor immediately.

What Are The Benefits & Risks Of This Technology?

CT Scan has several advantages over the traditional methods of radiography. CT Scan on Wheels completely eliminates the superimposition of images, although the process comes with its own set of risks which the patient should be aware of.

Benefits
  • Less investment Less travelling of patients Mobility Quality imaging

Risks
  • The contrast dye can cause side effects, however, this is unlikely to happen. The noise may irritate some patients. The exposure to radiation may cause cancer, however, this is highly unlikely to happen.

What Makes CT Scan on Wheels So Unique?

• The versatility of the developed technique allows the patient to sit with ease while doctors perform the CT scan.
• The technology is capable of transforming any room into an advanced imaging suite.
• It is a unique blend of rapid scan time, flexible settings and immediate image viewing which makes it a perfect fit for versatile real-time imaging.
• CT Scan on Wheels offers superior resolution as compared to other devices for CT scans.
• It has a large, 60cm field of view which enhances the efficiency and precision of the images.
• There are no age or weight restrictions for the machine.
