CT Scanning

High resolution CT scanning of all body areas (Brain, Head, and Neck, Spin, Chest, Cardiovascular, Abdomen, Pelvis, Genitourinary, and Musculoskeletal) are available using the highest quality CT equipment.

CT and CT Angiography (CTA)

Our state-of-the-art eight slice, 40 slice and 64 slice multidetector CT Scanners provide remarkably rapid image acquisition and image reconstruction times, increased anatomic coverage, significant reduction of motion artifacts and radiation dose, and dramatically improved resolution. As a result small sub-centimeter lesions can be detected with increased accuracy and frequency. Bolus chasing and other sophisticated software applications provide consistency and image optimization for CT angiography. CT Coronary Angiography can be performed utilizing advanced image processing that provides 2D and 3D reconstructions with enhanced resolution.

CT Colonography

CT Colonography is a relatively non-invasive examination that is utilized as a screening examination for the detection of colonic polyps. Our eight and 16 slice multidetector CT scanners produce high- resolution images of the colon and provide for extremely fast throughput minimizing patient discomfort. 3D reconstructions recreate the inner surface of the colon to display polyps as small as one mm in size.

CT Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring

Coronary Artery Scoring is a CT screening technique utilizing advanced post-processing software that detects coronary artery calcifications and compares the number and extent of calcifications with national standards. This provides the referring physician with a calcium index or “score” that quantifies the patients’ relative risk for coronary artery disease.

CT Low-dose Lung Screening

Low-dose Lung Screening is a CT screening technique that provides cross-sectional imaging of the lung in patients at high risk for developing lung cancer. Our eight and 16 slice multidetector CT scanners provide extremely rapid imaging thereby markedly reducing motion artifacts and dramatically improving sub-centimeter nodule detection. With more than 20 years of pioneering research leadership in detecting early lung cancers, the Mount Sinai team is pleased to offer the Lung Screening Program to patients.
