NEW YORK, March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- According to recent studies, the average American's total radiation exposure has nearly doubled in the last three decades, largely due to CT scans and other next-generation imaging tests. Now a new scanner that uses a low dose radiation may make it safer for doctors to treat their patients.

The Somatom Definition Flash scanner only targets a specific area and uses the lowest dose of radiation possible. Using advanced technologies, the scanner quickly produces a detailed representation of the area. In fact, most cardiac studies can be done within seconds and produce crisp, clear images that allow for evaluation and treatment.
As a result of the image accuracy, a physician can often diagnose disease without having to do exploratory surgery.
