Now surgeons are too tired-up with the use of 64-slice X-Ray scanner. They demand an updated tool, a revised version that delivers transparency in their proceedings’. Considering this Philips has lately exposed their 256-slice scanner that delivers 3-D images of the body’s shell, blood vessels, organs and every miniscule detail. This $2-million Brilliance CT machine was exposed to public in Chicago, at the Radiological Society of North America’s annual meeting. Within a minute, patient can view his body being scanned and with 80% less exposure of radiations to traditional X-ray machine.
Featured above is the image produced via technological advancement highlighting the core of the human body with unbeatable clarity. Its targets could be the skull, bones, blood vessels, and entire digestive system. The very process of capturing images from this device is known as Tomography. The rotational and translucent nature of the images allows you to take a 360 degree view of the body parts, enabling a complete and successful diagnosis. Presently, only the Metro Health medical centre based in Cleveland, Ohio is the proud owner of this unique scanner.
