Our Lady of the Lake's imaging services includes radiology, CT, MRI, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, special procedures and the advanced 64-slice CT scanner.
OLOL is one of the only hospitals in the area with the advanced 64-slice CT scanner. CT is a radiological method which has been used since 1974 to take pictures of certain regions of your body. Today, CT technology is an indispensable tool in medicine to assist doctors in detecting strokes, tumors, fractures and even blockages in your heart. The 64-Slice CT scanner can produce a three dimensional image of the bone, internal organs and vessels within the body. This technology gives the physician a view of the coronary arteries without having to introduce a catheter into the heart.
The impact of this technology to patients with heart disease is substantial. Earlier detection of Coronary Artery Disease will lead us to earlier treatment and intervention if necessary. CT is a safe, quick and effective way to screen patients with suspected heart disease.
