Fastest CT
Coronary artery examination & analysis of coronary artery calcification
  Cardiovascular disease has been one of the top three causes of death in Taiwan. Although some people usually do not experience uncomfortable symptoms, they may have cardiovascular disease without knowing it.
For individuals in the high risk group of cardiovascular disease or those who do not know if there is a coronary artery obstruction, the Fastest CT can detect coronary artery stenosis early and analyze of the structure of sclerosis to prevent the occurrence of acute myocardial infarction.
◎Recommended for
High risk groups susceptible to coronary heart disease include: diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, addicted to eating high-fat or high cholesterol foods, two or more risk factors among smoking, drinking and obesity, family history of myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular or peripheral artery disease, chest tightness and chest pain history, relatives who have suffered from coronary heart disease, or have done coronary stent or coronary artery bypass surgery.
Low-dose lung cancer screening
  Lung cancer has repeatedly replaced liver cancer as the first of the top ten deadliest cancers. It has always been the leading cause of female cancer deaths after 1986. In 2011, the number of people who died of lung cancer totaled more than eight thousand people in Taiwan.
The alarming fact about lung cancer is that there are usually no obvious symptoms, the patient is not easily aware of it. It is difficult for traditional X-ray to detect the tiny lesions of primary lung cancer. However, the Fastest CT can clearly detect the lung cancer.
◎Recommended for
Those with smoking habits or exposure to secondhand smoke, kitchen workers, asbestos workers, history of tuberculosis, or family history of cancer.
Aorta + lung cancer screening
 

"Malignant tumors" have always been the number one cause of death among our people. Lung cancer ranked first among those with malignant tumors. Lung cancer usually has no obvious symptoms. However, the use of the Fastest CT can detect tiny lesions, improving the detection of lung cancer to facilitate future tracking. Hypertension is a common chronic disease in our country, which can easily cause aortic dissection and aneurysm. The use of the Fastest CT can significantly improve early diagnosis.
◎Recommended for
Those with hypertensive vascular sclerosis risk factors, smoking habits, exposure to secondhand smoke, kitchen workers, asbestos workers, history of tuberculosis, or family history of cancer.

Head and neck + artery examination
  Cerebral vascular disease ranks second of the top 10 causes of death. The incidence of stroke in young people has greatly increased, although the survival rate is higher than the elderly, but disabled limbs or mental retardation and other complications result in family burden and social losses. The Fastest CT can help you detect lesions early and to receive appropriate treatment early.
◎Recommended for
Hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, transient cerebral ischemia, bad living habits, elderly, family history of brain tumors, head and neck disease.
Upper abdominal organs + artery examination
  Liver cancer is the second leading cause of cancer in our country. The Fastest CT can protect the upper abdominal organs and find liver, kidney, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen and other early tumor lesions, to achieve early detection and early treatment. In addition, arterial examination can identify possible causes of hypertension, and rule out hypertension caused by renal artery stenosis.
◎Recommended for
Cirrhosis, hepatitis carriers, family history of abdominal cancer, abdominal artery disease, and suspected hypertension due to renal artery stenosis.
Lower limb examination + renal artery examination
  For long-term diabetes and hypertension patients, there will be complications of peripheral arterial stenosis, which will cause foot ischemic ulcers or intermittent claudication symptoms. This examination can carry out early diagnosis of lower limbs vascular stenosis without the use of invasive angiography to prevent the above complications. In addition, it can evaluate whether fractures cause blood vessels to rupture, diagnose the location of the fracture, and provide a preoperative reference.
Moreover, arterial examination can identify the possible causes of hypertension and rule out hypertension caused by renal artery stenosis.
◎Recommended for
Hypertension, diabetes mellitus, obstructive stenosis of peripheral arterial sclerosis, ischemic ulcer of foot, lower limbs trauma, and renal artery stenosis.
Head dizziness, internal ear canal
  Due to modern work pressure, coupled with serious environmental pollution, people often have headaches, sometimes even with dizziness. People are often not sure which clinic they should go to get medical treatment. Our advanced medical imaging center provides you with a simple imaging test that allows you to easily perform medical exams and find out the cause of diseases as soon as possible.
◎Recommended for
Frequent headaches, dizziness, imbalance symptoms or feeling a lot of pressure.
3T Full-featured MRI
Head, neck, abdomen, pelvis, tumor screening
  The examination includes the brain, head and neck, abdominal cavity, and pelvic cavity, total of four major sites MRI. The inspection time is about 60 to 80 minutes.
◎Recommended for
Family history of cancer, high cancer tumor index, hepatitis B or C carriers.
Stroke and headache screening
  The examination includes the head tissue, cranial nerves, intracranial blood vessels, head and neck artery MRI. It can quickly and accurately diagnose brain tumors and strokes. The inspection time is about 40 to 60 minutes.
◎Recommended for
Unexplained headaches or stroke risk groups such as high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, long-term smoking, overweight, family history of head and neck arterioles, and geriatrics.
Whole spine screening
  The examination includes the neck, chest, lumbar MRI. It can help you find the common causes of lower back pain, neck and chest pain in modern people. The inspection time is about 40 to 60 minutes.
◎Recommended for
Unexplained back pain, neck and chest pain, spinal degenerative arthritis and scoliosis leading to soreness, sciatica, spur patients.
Prostate cancer screening
  Prostate MRI eliminates previous uncomfortable sensations caused by rectal coils inserted in the anus. It uses high signal and high resolution methods, without the need to place any equipment, allowing patients to easily and comfortably complete this exam. The inspection time is about 30 minutes.
◎Recommended for
Patients suspected of having prostate and seminal vesicle disease, or who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and have to assess whether the tumor invades the seminal vesicle or the surrounding tissue.
