Elaj Medical Centre Provides Facility OF CT SCAN In Ajman
CT-scan (Computed Tomography) also known as CAT-scan (Computed Axial Tomography) is an imaging modality that uses ionizing radiation (X-ray) to capture multiple/cross-sectional raw images of different body parts in different angles and with the help of a computer that converts these images into viewable 2D and 3D image, available at our Elaj Medical Centre Ajman.
A noninvasive way to study all parts of your body
Less sensitive to movement than MRI, Help doctors plan for, and later assess the results of many surgeries. Its ability to image bone, soft tissue and blood vessels all at the same time
To further look at an abnormality seen on another test such as an x-ray or an ultrasound

The GE LightSpeed VCT is a whole body CT scanner that has been designed to produce advanced cardiac and neuro imaging . The GE VCT 64 can capture images of a beating heart in five heartbeats or an organ in a second, and can perform whole body trauma in ten seconds, more than twice as fast as conventional multi-slice CT scanners. It does so without sacrificing clarity – it’s sub-millimeter resolution offers spectacular views of veins and arteries. For physicians, volume coverage means new diagnostic power, including the ability to routinely perform CT angiography, rapid tests for ER stroke and chest pain, and whole body trauma.
Combining volume coverage, superior resolution and reduced dose, the GE LightSpeed VCT 64 Slice CT Scanner makes imaging difficult patient’s routine and advanced CT studies simple. Image static organs is a single second, the lungs in two, and the entire body is only 10 seconds. The 64-slice data acquisition method allows for shorter breath-holds resulting in streamlining studies, faster examinations, and increased patient comfort.
With CT-scan, X-ray images are taken cross sectionally in a round tube and not just in one or two images but multiple ranging from 1-100 or more images in just a few seconds and will be processed with the CT-computer system to produce viewable 2D and 3D images
From Pediatrics to Adults and even Geriatrics; Male or Female but for pregnant patients, it should be assessed on properly by the referring doctor if the benefits can outweigh the risk.
Infants and young children sometimes require sedation or anesthesia to complete a CT exam without moving. Whether a child requires sedation will depend on the child’s age and the type of exam being performed. Moderate and conscious sedation can be provided. A physician or nurse specializing in the administration of sedation or anesthesia to children should be available during the exam to ensure child’s safety. Special instructions will be given on how to prepare the child for the sedation or anesthesia.
