St. Mary’s unveils new CT scanner

St. Mary’s Health Center in Jefferson City will unveil its latest medical imaging technology, an ultra-high-resolution 128-slice CT scanner, at an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony from 5-7 p.m. on Wednesday.

The new scanner can scan the entire body in seconds to provide incredibly sharp 3-D images of any organ.

This advanced technology captures each slice of an image in 83 milliseconds, cutting the time it takes for a scan by two-thirds and allowing physicians more precise images for diagnosing and treating illnesses.

St. Mary’s is one of a few hospitals in Missouri to use this new imaging technology.

The open house is free and open to the public. No reservations are required. The blessing and ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 5 p.m. in St. Mary’s Medical Imaging Department, first floor, with a reception to follow in the Assembly Hall behind the hospital’s main lobby.
