What Is A CT Scan?

A computed tomography (CT) scan or CAT scan is an imaging method which uses X-rays alongside powerful computers to generate high-resolution images.

CT scans are routinely used to gather diagnostic information about the brain, neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis. Also, it is a highly effective way to gain information about the skeletal system. In some clinical scenarios, 3-D images are created to assist in the diagnosis.

South Jersey Radiology Associates has a long history of using the latest and most technologically advanced medical imaging equipment, and currently utilizes the Siemens SOMATOM Definition, one of the fastest scanners on the market, for its CT scans. Combining cutting-edge technology with highly trained radiologists, the dedicated CT specialists at SJRA have the ability to identify abnormalities anywhere in the body.

A Position Emission Tomography (PET) scan is another form of diagnostic imaging that is commonly performed during a CT scan. At SJRA, we offer the ability to do both scans simultaneously, which produces images more quickly and accurately. Patients will find more comfort because the examination time is shorter. The combination of these two advanced scans eliminates the “wait-and-see” approach and allows your doctor to have access to more comprehensive information to provide the best treatment plan possible.

Types Of CT Scans

  • CT Angiography: A type of CT scan that generates high-resolution images of the inside of a patient’s blood vessels. These images can help assess the overall health of blood vessels including plaque buildup and blockages.
  • CT Arthrography: A type of CT scan that generates high-resolution images of joints. These images can help identify joint abnormalities, pain, and post surgery monitoring.
  • Virtual Colonoscopy: An effective alternative to the traditional colonoscopy that is less invasive.
