This is a 360 degree image from the Canon Aquilion 64-slice computed tomography (CT) system installed at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, Ill.  The room is large, allowing for gurney access on either side of the scanner. The two-part door to the hall also can open to allow better access. There are ceiling mounted booms for the contrast media injectors. The hospital offers snacks and water to patients, see on a table by the door.

Read the article "What to Consider When Buying a New CT Scanner" which includes information on the 320-slice scanner.
