BODY

A CAT scan or CT scan is a special test that uses both X-rays and a computer to capture cross-sectional images of the body. Since its discovery in 1974, this exam has become very popular for diagnosing a variety of diseases.

A CT scan can help identify many different problems in the body such as:

  • Bone and muscle disorders

  • Cancer

  • Heart disease

  • Lung nodules

  • Liver masses

  • Internal Injuries

  • Internal bleeding

It can also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of cancer treatments.

During a CT scan, one is briefly exposed to ionizing radiation. The radiation is higher than a standard X-ray because more detailed information is captured from a CT scan. Radiation has been identified to have an increased risk of cancer. However, doctors use the lowest radiation dose possible and most agree that the benefits outweigh the risk. It is important to note, that newer, faster machines may require less radiation than older technology. For this reason, here at MRI Scan & Imaging Center, we utilize the GE Discovery 610 128 Slice PET/CT system.

This is one of the highest quality PET/CT scanners available anywhere! It uses Advanced Technology, and provides extremely high resolution and sensitivity, while utilizing 40% less radiation exposure.

The actual exam begins after a patient has lied down on a motorized table, that slides into the section of the machine that performs the imaging. Straps and pillows are oftentimes used to help the person stay in position. While the table is moving, an X-ray tube which surrounds the patient table, rotates and takes images of different parts of the body. The technologist will be observing in a separate room, and they can see and hear the patient. There is full communication during the test. This is a painless exam.

 

Patients can resume normal activities after a CT scan. In some cases, patients may have been given a contrast material to drink. If that is the case, they should drink lots of fluids to help remove any contrast material from the body.

All CT images are stored as electronic data files, which are reviewed on a computer screen and evaluated by a radiologist. Once they interpret the images and report any findings, this information will be sent to the referring doctor, who would be responsible in getting this information to the patient.

*Women's Imaging including advanced Gynecological and Breast studies and Men's Imaging including advanced Prostate studies - both utilizing our advanced Computer Aided Detection systems.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS HAVE TO SAY...

“Very nice center. Everyone was friendly and professional. They took my insurance and I was able to get a real early appointment so I could get my MRI done and get to work on time. The office was recently renovated and looks like a spa. Everything is very clean and efficient. Really nice waiting room with wifi, tv, cafe latte machine etc. I went for some tests at another place two years ago and after coming here I'll never go back there. Highly recommended if you need a test, really good experience. "
