Elm Imaging Center

Computed tomography (CT) imaging is one of the most technologically advanced radiological innovations to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of internal diseases. CT Scanning delivers cross-sectional images of the body, allowing better visualization of specific soft tissue regions which could not otherwise be seen satisfactorily.

CT Scanning is instrumental in making an accurate diagnosis in patients with sinus disease, and is an invaluable 3-dimensional intra-operative tool used for patients requiring sinus surgery. We also offer 3-dimensional imaging assistance to dental professionals achieving precise dental implant placement.
