Computed Tomography (CT)

 

Computed tomography (CT), sometimes called “computerized tomography” or “computed axial tomography” (CAT), is a noninvasive medical examination or procedure that uses specialized X-ray equipment to produce cross-sectional images of the body. Each cross-sectional image represents a “slice” of the person being imaged, like the slices in a loaf of bread. These cross-sectional images are used for a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

 

CT scans can be performed on every region of the body for a variety of reasons (e.g., diagnostic, treatment planning, interventional, or screening). Most CT scans are performed as outpatient procedures.

 

CT exams are scheduled procedures that are performed Monday through Friday from 7am to 3:30pm.
