New imaging technology at UF Health Jacksonville offers an enhanced patient experience with more accurate and higher-quality imaging. With the addition of the Definition Flash dual-source CT scanner and the 3T Vida MRI scanner, patients have access to a full range of high-quality diagnostic imaging services.
The dual-source CT scanner, complete with Stellar Detector, captures faster images, resulting in a lower dose of radiation with improved image quality. With flash speed, whole body scans can be completed in just five seconds. This is especially helpful for patients who have difficulty holding their breath during scans. The lower radiation dose is also much safer for patients, especially cancer patients who may need multiple scans during their treatment, or for pediatric patients, who sometimes need to be sedated for a scan. Thanks to our new equipment, these scans can now be completed without the extra preparation, time and strain on the patient. Other benefits include advanced cardiac and neuro imagery with higher resolution.
