GE LightSpeed VCT 64-Slice Scanner System 
The Klabzuba Outpatient Imaging Center utilizes a GE LightSpeed VCT 64-Slice Scanner System, currently one of the most advanced technologies in health care and the only one available in Tarrant County that is offered as an extension of hospital services. Computed tomography (CT) is a noninvasive screening tool that provides clear and detailed images of the body's internal structures.

With a total of eight slice acquisitions per rotation, the LightSpeed VCT 64-Slice Scanner, located in the  Executive Health Program, provides advanced speed for all imaging procedures.

During a CT scan, the equipment moves around the patient, who lies stationary on a table throughout the procedure. Thousands of X-ray measurements are acquired and processed by a computer that displays the corresponding images on a computer screen. These two- or three-dimensional, cross-sectional images are often referred to as "slices." Physicians on the medical staff can shade, rotate, correlate and measure the anatomy in the images.

Signa HDx 3.0T(tesla) Magnetic Resonance Imaging System
The addition of the Signa HDx 3.0T(tesla) Magnetic Resonance Imaging System (MRI) to the Klabzuba Outpatient Imaging Center gives physicians on the medical staff access to a system that offers complete and innovative applications in neurological, musculo-skeletal and abdominal imaging, as well as contrast-enhanced angiography and spectroscopic imaging.

The new 3.0T(tesla) MRI scanner offers:

  • The highest clinical magnetic field strength available in Tarrant County
  • A new reconstruction processor for lightening-quick image reformations
  • Unparalleled image quality with the highest possible image resolution matrix
  • Advanced clinical applications and imaging coils for all anatomical areas of the body
