CT (computed tomography or CT scan) is an imaging technology that uses x-ray beams (radiation) and computers to create detailed, cross-sectional images of an area of the body.
CT scans are frequently used to evaluate abnormalities such as blocked blood vessels. CT also may be used to locate infections or tumors
, It serves as a valuable tool for use in minimally invasive interventional radiology procedures.
One of our newest, high-tech devices is the GE LightSpeed VCT scanner
-- the first such device in the state. It is many times faster than conventional multi-slice CT (“CAT”) scanners. In a single rotation lasting about a third of a second, the VCT captures 64 “slices” of anatomical data. The VCT (the “V” stands for "volume") represents a significant technological leap in coverage area, image clarity and speed, creating spectacular three-dimensional views of organs, arteries and veins. The speed of the VCT makes it ideal for creating detailed images of the beating heart.
The Department of Computed Tomography (CT Scan) offers state of the art scanning for scheduled appointments, urgent and emergency patients.
Our goal is to offer same or next day service for our referred patients.
Technical staff includes state licensed radiology technologists who are certified in the advanced practice of CT Scan by The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
Board certified radiologists with subspecialty expertise interpret scans and perform radiological consultations.
