What is Premium CT?
CT scans as many of you know it is a computed tomography scan that creates images of your internal organs, bones and tissues by using a combination of technology, X-Rays and a computer.
Premium CT can produce ultra-precise image with high accuracy especially in cardiac and cerebral angiography. Compared to the conventional CT, Premium CT reduces the radiation dose by 75% and acquire 640 images of 0.5mm interval with just 1 shot. With that, 2mm fine lesion can also be diagnosed. This is very suitable for children, adolescents and muscoskeletal systerm.

A computer will then make use of the information to form a cross-sectional images and give a clear view of a slice view of what is inside your body.
