Mercy Medical Center in Roseburg installs new CT scanner

Mercy Medical Center in Roseburg, Ore., is one of only 50 sites in the world to install a new form of CT technology. The LightSpeed QX/I CT scanner gives physicians the ability to simultaneously capture multiple images of a patient’s anatomy and is six times faster than traditional CT scanners. Additional features include clearer three-dimensional images and the ability to recreate different views without re-exposing patients.
