256 Slice CT

What is 256 Slice CT?

Medanta offers latest state-of-the-art diagnosis, by using 256 Slice CT, one of the latest technological advancements in the field of medical diagnosis. This is an innovative non-invasive imaging technique that is specifically used for all kinds of heart diseases and disorders, to obtain a complete 3-Dimensional visual representation of the heart and other organs, in less than 5 seconds.

This technology comes in especially handy for those who face difficulty in holding their breath and can be used to obtain cross-sectional images of internal organs horizontally and vertically, from multiple angles and dimensions. The data acquisition and processing in this machine is four times faster than conventional machines, enabling us to give you the best possible diagnosis in the shortest possible scanning time.

How is the technology unique?

How does it help?

With this technology, the specialists at Medanta can view the anatomy of your heart, aorta, pulmonary veins and coronary arteries to look out for plaques and blockages that may otherwise go unnoticed when traditional methods like X-Rays are used. At Medanta we are able to use the 256-CT to provide a patient’s calcium score, to detect hardening of the arteries, along with blood-flow data and strength of the pulse and heartbeat.  This investigation (CT-angiography) allows Medanta doctors to ensure patients who do not show any signs of disease in the CT images do not undergo unnecessary invasive procedures such as coronary angiographies.
