CT Scan (Computed Tomography)

Computed Axial Tomography (also referred to as CAT scan or CT scan), is a diagnostic procedure that uses special X-ray equipment to obtain cross-sectional pictures of the body.

  • CT imaging is commonly used to diagnose cancer, infections, trauma, and other disease processes by taking images of the head, spine, thorax, abdomen, bones and joints.
  • Most CT scans are completed in a fraction of the time of other advanced imaging—an important consideration for patients that are older or are in need of critical care because anesthesia is required for such studies.
  • Critical Care Specialists are available to supervise anesthesia as needed.
