Melbourne Radiology Clinic's multi-slice CT Scanner scanner has the capability to image the entire body in several seconds for all general CT applications. Modern CT scanners use multi-slice technology, which means that many fine slices may be performed of the patient as they enter the CT scanner in a single rotation, with the processing of the data resulting in reconstruction of the image from any angle. This means that 3-D images may be produced. As a CT uses rapid X-ray technology, it can also be used for sophisticated spine injection procedures, as well as guiding a needle deep into body parts for a specific medical purpose, such as a biopsy or drainage.
