CT or CAT Scan – (Computerized Tomography) or CAT (Computerized Axial Tomography) Scan
CT scan images allow the doctor to look at the inside of the body just as one would look at the inside of a loaf of bread by slicing it. This type of special X-ray, in a sense, takes “pictures” of slices of the body so doctors can look right at the area of interest. CT scans are frequently used to evaluate the brain, neck, spine, chest, abdomen, pelvis, and sinuses.
Better care. Safer imaging.
Aquilion Lightning™, Canon Medical Systems’ 16-row 32 slice* helical CT system for whole-body imaging, employs cutting-edge technologies to optimize patient care and accelerate clinical decision making. Innovative features ensure that high-quality isotropic images are routinely acquired with low patient dose. The workflow is streamlined, increasing patient throughput. And a wide range of advanced 3D and post processing applications provide clinical flexibility.
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
MRI is a test that uses powerful magnets, radio waves, and a computer to make detailed pictures inside your body.
Your doctor can use this test to diagnose you or to see how well you’ve responded to treatment. Unlike X-rays and CT scans, an MRI doesn’t use .
The Ultimate, Patient-Friendly MR. It has the shortest magnet with the largest clinical Field of View available in the industry. With a 71 cm aperture and a 1.5T ultra-short, open-bore, Vantage Titan™ provides outstanding image quality without compromise.
Vantage Titan MR enhances comfort and compliance with a unique range of exclusive, patient-friendly features that create a safe and pleasant scanning environment, resulting in faster exams. Raising throughput and productivity, these features ensure patient satisfaction.
Reducing noise at the source, is the source of our patients’ comfort.
MR acoustic noise is one of the major complaints of patients and medical staff. Canon Medical Systems’ patented Pianissimo™ technology significantly reduces the noise in and around the MRI environment, making exams more comfortable and easier to complete. With Pianissimo, MRI no longer needs to be loud and disruptive.

Bone Density Scan
A bone density scan determines if you have osteoporosis — a disorder characterized by bones that are more fragile and more likely to break. A bone density scan enhances the accuracy of calculating your risk of breaking bones.
Doctors use bone density testing to:
- Identify decreases in bone density before you break a bone
- Determine your risk of broken bones (fractures)
- Confirm a diagnosis of osteoporosis
- Monitor osteoporosis treatment
