Computed Tomography (CT) Scan

A CT or CAT scan is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to produce detailed cross-sectional images of the body, both horizontally and vertically. 

A CT scan is much more detailed than standard X-rays and can provide your doctor with important information about your bones, muscles, fat, organs and blood vessels. All scans are interpreted by our board-certified radiologists and medical physicists who are experts in their field.

Images are created when an X-ray beam moves in a circle around the body, providing many different views of the same organ or structure. The X-ray information is sent to a computer that interprets the X-ray data and displays it in a two-dimensional form on the monitor.
