Shands At UF Installs New CT Scanners
Shands at the University of Florida has installed the state's first three-dimensional CT scanners.
The 320 Detector Row CT Scanner will allow physicians to see a patient's heart and brain more clearly and completely. An image from the scanners will be shown in it's entire volume with a rotation, basically allowing doctors to see the image as a whole. The $2.5 million machine has the potential to detect strokes and heart diseases in a matter of minutes, which makes it revolutionary, doctors said.
â€œThis is one of those tools that sort of comes along once in a lifetime,â€ UF neuroradiologist Keith Peters said.
Doctors at Shands at UF have already started using the new CT scanner on patients.
