Computed tomography (CT) scans are a medical technique that uses multiple X-rays alongside computers to create cross-sectional images. The term “slice” refers to each image. Our imaging experts merge each slice using advanced software to create detailed, multi-level views of the sections in your body. CTs provide doctors with detailed information to guide treatment and monitor various conditions affecting the hard tissues of the body.
When your doctor needs to confirm a diagnosis or pinpoint the source of a symptom, they may order a CT. CTs may determine the source of certain symptoms including blood clots, micro-bone fractures, neurological issues, and vascular functions.
