Sanford Installs New Low Dose CT Technology

First Children's Hospital in the Nation to Offer Lowest Dose of Radiation

Sioux Falls, SD (Vocus) June 18, 2009 -- Sanford Children's Hospital is the first children's facility in the nation to offer new CT technology to patients that significantly reduces a child's radiation exposure during a CT scan.

Combining ASIR with these Sanford protocols means around a 60 percent reduced exposure to patients compared to the original CT scanner.

O'Brien, MD, President, Sanford USD Medical Center and Sanford Children's Hospital. "Children and young adults' cells are dividing rapidly, which makes them more vulnerable and susceptible to harm. With this new technology, we can administer just the dose needed to achieve quality images."

Not only will this new technology be located with the 64-slice CT scanner in Sanford Children's Hospital, but also with the 64-slice CT scanner in Sanford's emergency department, Trauma 5. A CT scan, also called computerized tomography or just CT, is an X-ray technique that produces internal images in cross
