Computed Tomography

Computed Tomography (CT) produces a series of cross sectional images of your body that can detect many medical conditions that are not visible on traditional x-rays. The large ring CT scanner houses an x-ray tube that moves rapidly around a specific anatomical area sending multiple signals to a computer creating 1 mm to 10 mm “slice” through your body. These images can then be reconstructed by the computer to form a complete image of your internal anatomy.
