New scanner

FARMINGTON – The Radiology Department at Franklin Memorial Hospital has installed a 64-slice computed tomography scanner that provides precise imaging to help physicians obtain the information needed to diagnose disease and illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and stroke. In cases of trauma, CT can quickly identify injuries to the liver, spleen, kidneys or other internal organs.

A 64-slice scanner can gather a high-resolution image of a heart, brain, or a pair of lungs in less than five seconds. A scan of the whole body (in search of a blood clot, for example) takes about 10 seconds.

The new CT scanner will be available during normal business hours and “on-call” 24-hours a day.
