Today the Globe and Mail has a feature piece on the latest exciting news from the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre. Our thanks to Patrice Bret and Narinder Paul for their help in eloquently explaining the technology and the program at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre.
Thanks are also due to the Globe's health editor, Paul Taylor, who researched and wrote the piece including a personal 'trip' as a volunteer for scanning. We've provided the link here for easy reading.
A key technological advance, the new 256 CT is believed to be the world's most advanced CT imaging technology. The technology, made by Toshiba, can cover four times the area of the 64 CT in a single scan. This technology offers a less invasive diagnosis for our patients with less radiation dose than standard CT.
We are delighted that UHN is able to contribute to advancing health care technologies for Canadians by doing research here, first, at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre. By leading the research and testing the scanner here in Canada, we are speeding up the approval process so we can offer this technology to our patients sooner, creating an exciting future for heart care.
