Large bore CT scanner / RT with simulation

We use the large bore CT scanner /RT with simulation to produce detailed images of areas inside the body for cancer diagnosis and radiation treatment planning.

This advanced imaging technology combines simulation, fluoroscopy and respiratory gating to plan and deliver radiation treatment with a high level of precision. Our cancer doctors use the information gathered by the scan to create the patient’s customized treatment plan.

Advantages of the scanner

  • Accurately pinpoints tumor location while monitoring tumor motion to guide a variety of interventional procedures.
  • Enables our radiologists to plan treatment in accordance with patients' breathing patterns.
  • Has a large opening to accurately scan patients of all sizes and in various positions.
  • The increased width of the scanning space provides a more comfortable, less claustrophobic experience for patients.
