Advanced CT Technology expands South Coast Radiology’s CT Scanning Service at Runaway Bay

South Coast Radiology (SCR) continues to be the leader in providing exceptional medical imaging services across the Gold Coast with its recent installation of the Canon Aquilion 160 Slice CT.

SCR Runaway Bay is excited to introduce this new machine that offers advanced technology further expanding the company’s CT scanning services.

Some of the benefits the Aquilion 160 Slice CT provides are:

Ultra-Low Dose, High Resolution CT Imaging

AiCE Deep Learning Reconstruction technology improves the ability to detect subtle pathology and resolve fine structures, delivering high resolution images at 25% – 50% less dose as compared to other scanners without AiCE technology.

Metal Artefact Reduction

SEMAR (Single Energy Metal Artefact Reduction) utilises a unique reconstruction technique to reduce metal artefact improving visualisation of implants and supporting bone and adjacent soft tissues.

Calcium Scoring

Provides the ability to visualise, measure and create a report of coronary calcification and calculate the calcium score using a non-contrast cardiac CT exam. Enables clinical reporting for coronary risk assessment.

Iodine Mapping for enhanced diagnostic capability

SURE Subtraction iodine mapping automatically generates robust iodine colour maps that aid in differentiating solid from cystic lesions, evaluating treatment effects, distinguishing hypo from hypervascular lesions and establishing organ ischemia.
