CT Scans
Computed tomography (CT), or CAT scan, uses special x-ray equipment to take images from different angles around the body. The computer then processes the images to show a cross-section view of body tissues and organs. CT scan imaging is very helpful because it can show several types of tissue – bone, soft tissue, lung and blood vessels – very clearly.

The CT scan division of the Department of Diagnostic Imaging offers the full-scope of American College of Radiology-accredited services and can perform the following tests:

  • CT scan with or without contrast
  • CT scan of the adrenals
  • CT scan of the torso, including:
    • Abdomen (with or without the pelvis)
    • Enterography, a procedure that uses contrast material to see inside the small intestine
    • Pelvis (with or without the abdomen)
    • Renal
    • Urogram, which looks at the urinary system and evaluates the kidneys, ureters and bladder
    • Routine chest
    • High resolution for such things as interstitial disease or bronchiectasis
    • 3D reconstruction
  • CT scan of the extremities
  • CT scan of the head, including:
    • Paranasal sinuses
    • Temporal bone
  • Three-phase CT scan of the liver
  • CT scan of the pancreas
  • CT scan of the spinal column, C-spine, T-spine and L-spine; with 3D reconstruction, based on imaging protocol
