Computed Tomography Department

General characteristics

Computed tomography is one of the most modern methods of diagnosis based on X-rays exams.

The information obtained, through further computer development, creates a complete image of organ systems, allowing to distinguish between anatomical and physiological changes in organs.

 

   

 

With the help of computed tomography it is possible to discover pathological changes in the brain, chest and abdomen, retroperitoneum and pelvis, vessels, ENT organs, bones, joint, spine and others.

 

To increase the accuracy of diagnostics, in case of necessity, the CT procedure is conducted by using contrast agent. 

 

 

CT diagnostic method is very effective for detection of benign and malignant tumors of various organs even the smallest sizes, to clarify their nature, prevalence, vascularisation etc.

There are no absolute contraindications for CT-scan procedure

 

The relative contraindications are mainly regardto the contrast agent:

 

  •  Allergic diseases (especially bronchial asthma);
  • Allergic reaction to the iodine solution;
  • Renal insufficiency
  • Pregnancy
  •  Hyperthyroidism
       

 

Patient preparation for CT scan

 

For the head, neck, thorax CT scan usually there is no need for special preparation of the patient.For the CT scan of abdomen and small pelvis the preliminary preparation of the patient is necessary.

 

 To increase the diagnostics accuracy of CT scan it could be necessary the intravenous injection of contrast agents.

 

Equipping
Erebouni Medical Center has been supplemented with advanced, innovative computed tomography (CT) scanners.

SIEMENS Healthineers SOMATOM go. UP from worldwide known Siemens company performs the most complex radiological researches thus allowing to broaden clinical range.Introducing groundbreaking CT products and services for decades, Siemens Healthineers is known as the innovation leader. By reducing repetitive workflow steps, GO technologies help standardize and simplify all processes.Unlike the previous generation tomographs, this new device gives a super-accurate image of the disease, diagnosing diseases at an earlier stages.

* SOMATOM go.Up provides new opportunities, with entirely new technologies, new style and design.* SOMATOM go.Up features a line-up of innovative solutions that bring an unparalleled level of flexibility and mobility to daily CT routines.

In addition to the technical advantages, high-end CT scanner also helps to enhance patient comfort. These solutions are especially for those who have a fear of closed spaces.
Due to its effective workflow, SOMATOM go.Up allows to broaden clinical range and grow with profound clinical results. Premium technologies deliver high-quality results.
Benefits of SOMATOM go.UP:
* New age engineering solutions have reduced the research period by 1.5 times
* Radiation dose is minimized from 4 to 6 times
* contrast media dosage is minimized while maintaining the image quality
One of the exceptional features of SOMATOM go.UP is a low-exposure lung test, which is equivalent to fluorescence, but is more informative and also suitable for preventive research.

SOMATOM go.Up has a patient table with scannable range up to 160 cm that can hold up to 170 kg for bariatric patients. Multi-function table is equipped with newly designed accessories.
