Computed Tomography (CT Scan)

Information about your CT scan.

A CT scan is an imaging method that uses X-rays to create images/pictures of cross sections of the body. These images can then be examined and reconstructed using a computer.

  • The images can be compared to a loaf of bread that has been sliced by a bread slicer, where each slice can be taken and examined individually.
  • The exam is relatively short, but modern technology gives radiographers the ability to obtain very relevant information.
  • CT images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels typically provide greater detail than conventional X-ray images.
  • Radiologists interpret these images and are able to diagnose cancers, cardiovascular disease, infectious diseases, trauma and musculoskeletal disorders with greater accuracy.
