Computed Tomography (CT Scan)

Advanced Imaging proudly offers a 256-channel Philips Brilliance Computed Tomography (CT) scanner.computed tomography

This cutting edge machine provides ultra-high resolution, non-invasive scanning at up to one half of the radiation dose of less sophisticated scanners at remarkable speeds.  The significantly reduced radiation dose is a major advance in CT technology and is particularly beneficial in the treatment of children.

Key Benefits

Our state-of-the-art multi-slice and ultra-fast helical scanner provides the most comprehensive scans possible, including diagnostic body, musculoskeletal, cardiac and neurologic scanning


 

What is CT?

CT (Computed Tomography), sometimes referred to as CAT Scan, is a diagnostic medical test that uses a sophisticated x-ray to produce highly accurate images.  The resulting images are incredibly detailed and greatly assist in the diagnostic process by helping physicians visualize structures within the human body and how they relate to one another.

What should I expect on exam day?

CT scans are painless and simple.  In most cases, there is little specific preparation you need to undergo prior to a CT scan.  If you are having a CT scan of your head, we will require that you remove all jewelry, hair pins, etc.  If you are undergoing a CT scan of you chest, abdomen, pelvis or extremities, you may be asked to change into a patient gown.  A personal locker will be provided for safe-keeping of valuables.  Certain exams may require a short period of fasting prior to imaging.  If so, you will be made aware of this when you book your appointment.

Will I receive intravenous injections?

If your exam requires a contrast agent, you will be asked to sign a consent form and an IV will be placed by a nurse.

How do I find out the results of my scan?

Your CT will be reviewed by a Radiologist.  The Radiologist will send a report to your physician.
