    The Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging Program provides Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the heart and great vessels for adult and pediatric patients. The Gill Imaging Center has two state-of-the-art, 64-slice CT scanners, one of which represents the first dual-source CT scanner in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Two MR scanners, 1.5 Tesla and 3.0 Tesla, expand UK HealthCare’s advanced imaging capabilities.
