Medical imaging is a crucial tool in disease identification and diagnosis. Now, medical imaging specialists at Westchester Medical Center can capture inpatient scans fast and with enhanced clarity, with a new spectral computed tomography imaging system.

In fact, Westchester Medical Center recently became the first hospital on the East Coast — and only the second hospital in the U.S. — to have captured high-quality scans with more information than conventional CT imaging with what’s known as the Spectral CT 7500. The technology can help improve disease identification and possibly decrease the need for rescans, allowing physicians to move beyond where the suspicious finding is located to characterizing what it is.
