CentraState Installs 128-Slice CT Scanner
Enhances ability to detect cardiac issues 

FREEHOLD – CentraState Medical Center has recently installed a new 128-slice CT scanner in our Radiology department.

“This new 128-slice, low-dose scanner allows for faster body imaging. This is especially important for image scans of the heart. The faster technology allows us to capture the image of the heart between beats,” explains Mandi Wortman, clinical director of Radiology Services at CentraState Medical Center. “With this enhanced technology, we will be able to do a whole-body imaging in only 12 seconds.”

Additional benefits of the 128-slice CT scan include:

  • Low-dose radiation emission
  • Safe for pediatric patients and offers videos for the children to watch.
  • Offers instruction to hearing-impaired patients via video.

The Emergency Department will also be installing a 64-slice CT scanner to bring enhanced technology to our Emergency Department patients and provide them with low-dose CT scanning.
