GE Revolution Frontier Gen 2 CT Scanner MRI Machine

Terrebonne General Health System is Louisiana’s only facility in the state to offer breakthrough technology that provides medical experts with the clearest, most accurate images available on the market thanks to the new GE Revolution Frontier Gen 2 CT Scanner.

In other CT scanners, metal caused by hip implants, clips, screws, or dental work, may result in blurred images. The GE Revolution offers metal artifact reduction, which clearly defines metal images so readings are more accurate. With this advanced automation, Terrebonne General’s equipment aids physicians in making a prompt, more precise diagnosis.

Patient comfort and safety is a top priority for Terrebonne General. Patients can expect the following, thanks to the GE Revolution Frontier Gen 2 CT Scanner:

  • Faster trauma scanning

    MRI ScanServices offered through the Radiology Department at Terrebonne General are fully accredited by the American College of Radiology for specific imaging tests. Our Imaging Department is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) for mammography, ultrasound, CT scans, nuclear medicine, Pet CT, and MRI scans.

    Our CT scanners at Terrebonne General perform multi-slice imaging on a routine basis, giving medical providers outstanding diagnostic information. CT scans, also called “cat scans,” are units equipped with a low-dose radiation software that assures patients are only exposed to minimal amounts of radiation. These scanners provide expert image quality while reducing X-ray radiation dose. Minimized radiation and the speed of these imaging tests are two of the main benefits of the CT scanners.

    Other important clinical uses for the CT scanner are:

    • Evaluation of stroke injuries
    • Evaluation of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis, and extremities using CT angiography
    • Image-guided biopsies
