VSH Installs New CT

VSH is pleased to announce the installation of a new CT in our Cary hospital.  The new equipment is a 16 slice GE Lightspeed with all the bells and whistles. 

The 16 slice upgrade will greatly expand the scope of our CT studies.

  • Higher speed of the CT will allow more sedated exams with reduced dependence on anesthesia. This includes multifocal trauma patients, acute abdomens, and musculoskeletal studies.
  • Higher quality multiplanar reconstructions and thinner slices will allow more precise definition of smaller lesions.
  • Multiphase contrast studies will improve confidence in diagnosis of vascular anomalies such as portosystemic shunts, and increase sensitivity of detection in small lesions such as insulinomas and early cardiac based hemangiosarcomas.

CT is available Monday through Friday in our Cary hospital.
