Alliance Hospital also is equipped with the latest high tech cutting-edge machines one of which is a Computed Tomography Scanner, which uses X-rays to make detailed images of the body’s interior. The CT scanner sends X-rays through the body area being studied. Each rotation of the scanner provides a picture of a thin slice of the organ or area. All of the images are saved as a single pattern on a computer.
A CT scan can be used to study all parts of the body, such as the chest, abdomen, pelvis, or an arm or leg. It can create images of internal body organs, such as the liver, pancreas, intestines, kidneys, bladder, adrenal glands, lungs, and heart. It also can study blood vessels, bones, and the spinal cord.
With the presence of this machine in the hospital, Alliance Hospital immediately offers patients several advantages of affordability, timely scans for, and reduction in long distance travel before, a definitive diagnosis and treatment recommendation of any ailment.
