Diagnostic CT

Detailed cross-sectional images of the inside of the body.

A CT (Computed Tomography) is a scan that allows doctors to see structures in your body, like bones, organs, and other tissues.

It is a non-invasive procedure using a series of X-rays that are taken at different angles around your body. It then uses a computer to create cross-sections or slices of your body. CTs are able to image nearly any part of the body and are often used for diagnosing trauma, bone and joint problems, finding masses, and internal bleeding.
