Frequently Asked Questions
enhancement results in a three-dimensional view (referred to as a slice) of a particular part of the body.
During a routine X-ray, dense tissues can block other areas. Aided by the computer, a CT scan is able to put together the different slices and create a three-dimensional view, clearly showing both bone and soft tissue.
For more information – please see the information on the following link:
- Is it necessary to have CT scan?
- If yes – Can you get CT scan using low radiation dose?
- There are technologies available today (PIXELSHINE™) which enables dose reduction while providing diagnosable quality CT scans.
First – You should look at all the CT scan images processed by Pixelshine™ and posted on our web site,
Second – You may consider submitting a few low dose CT scans for processing by our software Pixelshine™. Algomedica pre-sales will process these studies within minutes for you to review.
Third – you can install our software in your imaging center and start processing low dose CT scans.
Finally various research papers are being published in next few weeks and these will provide you the comfort level that Pixelshine™ can improve the quality of CT scans acquired at low dose.
First – Imagine if one of your loved ones has to be scanned a d you know that you can get such a scan at 1/3rd the dose used in a typical scan without any adverse effect on diagnosability – what would you do? You will go for low dose CT scans. Well – apply the same consideration towards your patient population.
Second – It provides you a competitive advantage over your competition as you can position yourself as a safe provider of medical imaging.
Third – It is a matter of time that the need for CT scans at low dose will be law of the land. It is better to get ahead of the curve and do the right thing by your patient population.
Fourth – Reducing the radiation dose for CT scans extends the life of Xray tube by a few years. You can save lot of money by extending the XRay tube life.
