Computerized Tomography at Good Shepherd

Computed tomography, often referred to as CT or CAT scan, is an effective diagnostic tool that lets doctors see into areas of the body that cannot be seen on a regular X-ray examination. With the acquisition of the
64-Slice LightSpeed® VCT from GE Healthcare, the world’s first Volume Computed Tomography (VCT) system, Good Shepherd Medical Center provides the highest level of CT imaging technology in Longview
and Marshall.

Good Shepherd Health System physicians are now able to capture images of a beating heart in five heartbeats, an organ in one second, and perform whole body trauma imaging in 10 seconds, more than twice as fast as conventional multi-slice CT scanners. In addition to the 64-Slice VCT, Good Shepherd Longview utilizes three other high-tech CT scanners, one of which is located in the emergency department for use in trauma situations.
