CT Scan

CT (computed tomography) scan, sometimes called "cat" scan, uses special x-ray equipment to obtain image data from different angles around the body, and then uses computer processing of the information to show a cross-section of body tissues and organs.

CT imaging is particularly useful because it can show several types of tissue-lung, bone, soft tissue and blood vessels-with great clarity. Using specialized equipment and expertise to create and interpret CT scans of the body, radiologists can more easily diagnose problems such as cancers, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, trauma and musculoskeletal disorders.

The Spiral CT at Capital Health provides extended coverage of the body, produces images with much greater detail, and allows for fast and accurate assessment of injuries. Whereas most scanners offer one-slice images, this new generation scanner shows 16, providing more data to radiologists with less wait.
