The state-of-the-art scanners at Washington Health System provide your doctor with the superior image quality required for the most accurate diagnosis. We offer the latest technological advancements in cardiac and vascular imaging. CT scanning rapidly produces detailed images of the body. This test may be used to visualize blood vessels, identify masses and tumors, or guide a radiologist to the correct area during a biopsy. It is valuable in diagnosing problems and injuries to the hands, feet and other skeletal structures. CT scans can quickly identify injuries to the liver, spleen, kidneys and other internal organs. We are able to provide fast and accurate diagnoses while reducing radiation dose.
Your scan may require oral contrast (most abdomen and pelvic scans) and intravenous contrast. Your physician will advise you of any preparation instructions required. Our staff will carefully screen you prior to your study to ensure your needs and medical history is taken into consideration.
Our CT scanners provide a customized radiation dose for each patient. This allows 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. The scanners have dose check software that alerts users if dose limits are exceeded prior to scanning. The care and safety of patients is Washington Health System’s primary concern.
