Holy Family Hospital

64-Slice CT Scan

Merrimack Valley Hospital CT ScanHoly Family Hospital in Methuen and Holy Family Hospital at Merrimack Valley in Haverhill offer patients the most advanced technology available, including a CT 64-Slice System and the LightSpeed VCT from GE Healthcare.

The LightSpeed VCT system will help us obtain the information we need to diagnose disease and life-threatening illnesses, including cardiovascular disease, chest pain and stroke. LightSpeed VCT, the world's first volume CT (VCT) system, captures images of a beating heart in five heartbeats, an organ in one second, and performs whole body trauma in ten seconds, more than twice as fast as conventional multi-slice CT scanners. This speed is especially helpful in shortening breath holds for geriatric patients, patients who are on ventilators, and pediatric patients  and helps to deliver outstanding image quality and clear, highly detailed images of the heart and coronary arteries.
