“Ultra Low Dose High Definition CT” At Radiology Associates Of Ridgewood

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0 | January 21st, 2015

Radiology Associates of Ridgewood is pleased to announce the first commercial installation of the new GE “Veo” Ultra Low Dose High Definition CT Scanner in the United States. This equipment, recently FDA approved, allows us to perform some CT scans with up to 90% less radiation to the patient. At the same time, it improves image clarity, significantly enhancing our ability to accurately diagnose disease and life-threatening illnesses.

Radiology Associates is now a completely “low-dose” CT facility. Our two CT scanners use between 20 and 90% less radiation than other state-of-the-art scanners, depending on the examination type and the clinical indication. Lowering the radiation dose is especially important for:

  • Younger patients, who may be more susceptible to radiation induced injury.
  • Patients with medical conditions that are expected to require multiple follow up CT scans, such as cancer, lung nodules, kidney stones, aortic aneurysms, and Crohn’s Disease.

Our NJ Radiologists are board certified and have significant formal subspecialization within the field of diagnostic radiology providing the expertise needed to fully take advantage of ongoing innovations in modern diagnostic imaging. This approach achieves the highest standard of care to meet the demands of our special-interest referring physicians, and leads to the delivery of exceptional quality services for our patients.
