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 cross-sectional images both horizontally and vertically, of the body.
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.
Methodist Women's Hospital's CT scanners are accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR awards accreditation to facilities that achieve high practice standards. The program also evaluates personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.
