Computerized axial tomography, or a CT scan, uses the lowest dose of radiation possible to achieve fast, precise, high-quality diagnostic imaging. Several amenities increase patient comfort: a longer table for tall patients, a timer to gauge breath-holds, and voice instruction available in nine languages.
This technology combines many X-Ray images to generate cross-sectional views and, if needed, three-dimensional images of internal organs and structures. It’s used to define normal and abnormal structures and assist in procedures by accurately guiding instruments or treatments. Special software adjusts image distortion that can result from metal implants.
The Diagnostic & Treatment Center is uniquely recognized by the National Lung Alliance to perform CT screening for lung cancer.
