The Bali International Medical Centre Hospital (BIMC) have recently installed a sophisticated new CT Scanner (Computed Tomography) that can provide doctors with highly detailed 3-D images of the brain, heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys, which cannot be seen in the same detail by standard x-ray examinations.
The Siemens' state-of-the-art diagnostic CT scanner provides a 6-slice scan of the human body providing a wide range of clinical applications from 3D to perfusion imaging to CT fluoroscopy.
Providing medical professionals with a detailed view of a disease or injury site within the body, Doctors at BIMC are extremely excited about the time-critical non-invasive diagnostic ability this new piece of medical equipment provides doctors, particularly in accident and trauma cases.
As with the BIMC's existing advanced x-ray technology, the results of the new CT-scanner can be transmitted electronically allowing diagnostic and treatment conferences with leading hospitals around the world.
Another advantage of the new CT scan now in operation at BIMC is the reduced level of radiation exposure for the patient. Through the use of an "Ultra Fast Ceramic Detector" the smallest possible dose of radiation results in exceptional image quality. The equipment's highly efficient detector and the automated dose management system analyzes the smallest possible dose of radiation to result the best image quality based on the patient's size, weight and anatomy. This system has been proven to reduce the radiation dose to up 68% compared to a conventional CT scan.
Craig Beveridge, Managing Director of the BIMC said, "the new 6-slice CT-Scan machine at BIMC is represents the most advanced diagnostic equipment of its kind now in operation in Bali. Our team of medical specialists is convinced that the round-the-clock availability of advanced CT imagery will serve to enhance our shared vision of enhancing health and saving lives by providing a truly international standard of medical care in Bali."
