Dr Hartwig and Partners recently equipped Kokstad Private Hospital with a Toshiba Alexion 16-slice multi-detector row computed tomography (MDCT) scanner. This technology enables the production of isotropic sagittal and coronal reformats of images obtained in the axial plane, as well as 3D reconstructions with volume rendering and surface shading.
Applications of CT include brain imaging in the setting of stroke or suspected intracranial mass lesions, delineation of sinus pathology and surgery planning, chest imaging including the investigation of suspected pulmonary embolism, lobar or segmental collapse, empyema and high resolution CT (HRCT) for investigation of interstitial lung diseases, abdomino-pelvic surgical and medical pathology, detection of urinary tract calculi, cancer detection and staging, trauma imaging and boundless other vital applications.
The acquired images are sent electronically to Dr Hartwig and Partners for remote reporting.
