A computed tomography (CT) scan is a diagnostic test that produces detailed images of inside the body from different angles. Your physician may order a CT scan to identify and diagnose a health problem or condition, such as cancer, blood system disease or an internal injury. A CT scan is helpful to look closely at areas of the body that are not easily seen by an X-ray. The test can also be used to guide a radiologist to the correct area during a biopsy.
The care and safety of patients is our primary concern. Our multislice CT scanners provide a customized radiation dose for each patient. The scanners have dose check software that alerts users if dose limits are exceeded prior to scanning. This allows us to produce the highest quality images with the lowest possible dose of radiation. The ultra-fast scanning capabilities shorten exams so less contrast and radiation are required.
