CT Scan

(Computed Tomography)

Computed Tomography is a sophisticated form of x-ray imaging that provides pictures of the body in a series of slices. A CT scan shows clear images of bone, internal organs, muscles and blood vessels which allows doctors to distinguish between normal, diseased, or injured tissue. 


Our state-of-the-art multi-slice CT enables us to provide advanced diagnostic technology in our community. The Perspective 128 CT has several benefits for physicians and patients, including:

  • Ability to image all body regions, expanding exam capabilities to high-end neurology and cardiac scanning.

  • Special dose-safety features that can reduce dose by up to 60 percent, and help protect organs/areas on the body that are more sensitive to radiation.

  • Large areas can be scanned rapidly. The system can scan a 50 cm chest in less than six seconds, this helps reduce the time patients have to hold their breath during the exam, improves image quality and reduces the need for re-examinations.

  • Patient-friendly design enables easier patient access and more comfortable exams as well as enables patients to remain in constant contact with the technologist throughout the entire exam.

  • We are staffed on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergency needs

  • A scheduled appointment is required for outpatients

What to Expect During a CT

Depending on the area of the body being examined, we may ask you to change into a gown. You’ll lie down on the CT table, which passes quickly through the scanner. Depending on what exam was ordered, you may be given a contrast dye by mouth or by injection with a small needle.​
