Cardiac imaging off to a flying start in Mount Gambier
17 July 2020
In a huge boost to regional health services, Benson Radiology has commenced cardiac imaging in Mount Gambier. This move follows Benson Radiology’s Australia-first installation of the new Siemens Somatom X.cite.
In its first three days of operation alone, Benson Radiology performed CT Coronary Angiograms (CTCA) on more than 20 patients. The technology used to reconstruct CTCA Images utilises an innovative multi-light source, cinematic rendering technology developed by animation studio Pixar. Produced as part of our standard post processing of a CTCA, this process allows for greater visualisation of high density and high contrast structures as shown in the image above
Cardiac imaging is a significant addition to our CT services in Mount Gambier and the local health services of the South East.
