CT Scans

A CT (Computed Tomography) scan uses a combination of x-rays and computer technology to produce cross-sectional images of the body that can generate 3D images. A CT scan shows detailed images of any part of the body, including the bones, muscles, fat, organs, and blood vessels in order to help detect tumors, investigate internal bleeding, or check for other internal injuries or damage.

Common Uses of CT Scans

  • To detect internal injuries and internal bleeding, such as those caused by a car accident
  • To detect bone and joint problems, like complex bone fractures and tumors
  • To detect tumors, infections, abscesses, and blood clots
  • To evaluate coronary artery disease and diagnose vascular disorders
  • To monitor conditions like cancer, heart disease, emphysema, or liver masses
  • To guide treatment plans and procedures, such as surgeries, biopsies, and radiation therapy
