CT SCANNER – New technology for CT imaging has added services at MCH.  The Toshiba Aquilion 64-slice Fast Whole-Body Scanner with CT fluoroscopy was introduced in December, 2011, when the hospital made its move into its new facility.  The scanner provides increased patient comfort with greater diagnostic capabilities.  In conjunction with the scanner MCH has added a new 3-D imaging workstation for the radiologist to view the exam in other projections.  The new dual-head Med Rad contrast media injector will improve the distribution of the exam and will provide a detailed injection report for the patient’s medical record.

ULTRASOUND – MCH began using the GE Logiq E-9 Ultrasound system in the Fall of 2011.  Ultrasound is non-ionizing (doesn’t use x-rays), fast (images are displayed in real time) and versatile.  For these reasons ultrasound is frequently used on soft tissue for diagnostic purposes.
