Computed Tomography (CT) is a diagnostic tool that combines X-rays with computer technology to produce images of the body. These images can show the solid organs, bones, vascular system and soft tissues in great detail. New techniques can even alleviate the need for interventional procedures. A CT scan is quick and painless and usually requires 15 minutes to complete.
Our radiologists and staff are highly trained and dedicated to giving the best possible care to our patients. Our Outpatient Imaging Center has remained at the leading edge of CT technology in the area and utilizes the latest imaging techniques to produce quality images to aid referring physicians in planning the medical/surgical treatment of their patients.
The Outpatient Imaging Center uses one of the fastest CT scanner on the market, the Toshiba 64-Slice CT scanner. For patients, this powerful imaging equipment means three-dimensional detail in less than one-third of a second, increasing the potential for faster and less invasive diagnostic procedures.
