Lee Health Pediatric 4:3

What if you could provide imaging for pediatric patients closer to home, while decreasing the need for radiation and sedation – improving the overall patient experience for those patients and their families?

In this video, Dr. Heidi Lewis, Director of Pediatric Radiology, and Dr. Eric Eason, Chief of Pediatric Cardiology, both at Golisano Children’s Hospital (part of Lee Health, in Fort Myers, FL), share how the SOMATOM Force Dual Source CT scanner is helping them improve pediatric imaging by providing very small vessel imaging for coronary anomalies, arches, and pulmonary vein anomalies for congenital patients.

A 50-year-old female with a BMI of 66.2 complained of chest pain upon exertion when walking up one flight of stairs. A coronary computed tomography angiography (cCTA) exam was completed to evaluate vascularity and myocardial structure with an accompanying calcium score.

A retrospective spiral scan mode and 0.25 second rotation speed on the SOMATOM Force Dual Source CT scanner was used.
