HSA CT scan service resumes with new advanced scanner
The Health Services Authority (HSA) has resumed its computed tomography (CT) scan service effective 26 April 2021 after temporary suspension of the service to make room for the installation of a new modern scanner.
“The Revolution CT allows us the ability to lower radiation doses while capturing higher quality imaging, making the process safer than before,” said HSA Interventional Radiologist Dr Alessandro Lemos. “It will also make scanning of challenging organs such as the heart easier and more efficient. All of these benefits will result in a significantly more comfortable and safer patient experience and contribute to better patient outcomes.”
Other capabilities of the machine include high quality vascular studies and fluoroscopy that enables real time image control over the entire body during interventional procedures, which reduces time and radiation dose to the patient. Additionally, it may be used for CT brain perfusion for the evaluation of stroke.
The HSA thanks everyone for their patience.
