Dr. Sunil P Thomas

I am a Radiologist working with NMC Abu Dhabi. We have just installed a 64 slice Brilliance Philips scanner and have started preliminary cardiac patients.
The image quality is largely dependant on patient compliance and satisfactory results require heart rate of 70bpm.
Calcium scoring is great though and as a screening tool it is nice.
We are however not giving up and will install a dual source SOMATOM Definition in the near future in our Dubai specialty hopital.
That will hopefully nail the problem and I will get back to you after we get images.
