Computed Tomography (CT)

NWI is pleased to offer the new SOMATOM® go.Up CT scanner from Siemens. Operated via tablet and remote control, the new scanner enables technologists to remain with patients during scan preparation, allowing our CT technologists to maximize the patient experience. The SOMATOM go.Up also delivers exceptional scan speed and outstanding image quality and uses some of the lowest radiation doses achievable for a 64-slice CT.

NWI is committed to safe and effective imaging. Our equipment provides you with:

  • More enhanced and detailed images
  • Low/customized radiation dose techniques
  • Greater table weight capacity
  • A more comfortable experience

Computed Tomography (CT) is an extremely fast scan (using a combination of X-rays and computers) that captures very detailed images of your organs, vascular system, abdomen and bones. A CT scan serves as a diagnostic tool that allows the radiologist to see the location, nature and extent of different diseases or abnormalities inside your body. CT scanning can be used to obtain information about organs (liver, pancreas, intestines, kidneys, adrenal glands, lungs, and heart), blood vessels, the abdomen and bones.
