CT 64-slice Scanner

CT scanning combines special x-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body. These cross-sectional images of the area being studied can then be examined on a computer monitor or printed.

CT scans of internal organs, bone, soft tissue and blood vessels provide greater clarity and reveal more details than regular x-ray exams.

Using specialized equipment and expertise to create and interpret CT scans of the body, radiologists can more easily diagnose problems such as cancers, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, trauma and musculoskeletal disorders.

Maine Coast has a Philips Brilliance CT 64-slice scanner which is one of the most advanced CT systems on the market. This system can expand clinical boundaries in cardiac, pulmonary, trauma, and pediatric imaging.

Comprehensive range of clinical applications and features not offered on other comparable systems in the market.
  • Fast Scanning Time, claustrophobic friendly
  • DoseWise™ design that delivers lowest amount of radiation possible without compromising resolution
  • Scalable platform for growth and future applications, making each Brilliance CT system a secure, long-term investment for the community.
This is the system for those who want the latest CT can offer, and realize productivity is an integral component of results. Among the many examinations we can better visualize are pulmonary embolus (blood clots in the lungs), acute appendicitis and ureteral lithiasis (kidney stones). Healthcare in the area will be greatly enhanced with this new important advancement. RSS
