innovative procedures with the 64-Slice CT Scanner

5-Beat Cardiac

Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital now has the ability to provide a comprehensive view of the heart and coronary arteries with sub-millimeter resolution in just 5 heartbeats. The CT's broad coverage and speed reduces the artifacts caused by beat-to-beat variability-resulting in more robust, repeatable procedures, greater vessel visualization and shorter breath holds for sick or elderly patients.

Triple RuleOut

Good Shepherd Hospital's new technology has the ability to help clinicians rule out (or in) three of the most life-threatening critical conditions in chest pain in one single scan-aortic dissection, pulmonary embolism and coronary artery disease.
