In an effort to improve standards of diagnoses and make the process less stressful for the patient, the general hospital in Vienna (AKH) has officially unveiled its multi-slice computer tomography (MCT) apparatus. It is hoped that the equipment will enable the university clinic for radiodiagnostics to detect changes in pathology at an early stage. The device also measures the amount of calcium in blood vessels, improving the possibility of early heart attack detection.
