- Multi-slice CT scanner : The multi-slice CT scanner delivers speedy, high quality images with less X-ray energy, allowing for improved accuracy and earlier diagnosis in a wide range of applications. It provides greater coverage in a very short time, requiring shorter breath holds and less discomfort for patients. This equipment can accommodate patients weighing up to 450 pounds.

The equipment’s open C-shape is designed to accommodate larger patients and alleviate patient anxiety and claustrophobia.
