Computed Tomography (CT)
A CT scan is a diagnostic test that takes cross sectional pictures of the patient's internal anatomy. A CT scan creates highly detailed, cross sectional images of body parts and internal organs. CT can show bone and soft tissue structures such as internal organs, muscles, and blood vessels. It can be utilized to detect and diagnose a wide variety of medical conditions and abnormalities of nearly any body organ. A CT scan may require a contrast media such as barium or IV contrast to better highlight abnormalities. These examinations are performed by certified technologists, and every examination is directly supervised and interpreted by board certified radiologists.
