CT stands for computed tomography. The CT scan can reveal anatomic details of internal organs that cannot be seen in conventional X-rays. The X-ray tube spins rapidly around the patient and the X-rays strike numerous detectors after passing through the body.
A computer processes the information to show a cross-section of soft tissue structures of the body including organs, muscles and blood vessels. The innovative design of Professional Imaging's CT provides optimal patient comfort while providing outstanding diagnostic information. Features of the scanner include true-to-detail images, lower and isolated radiation doses, and accurate diagnoses of head, spine, organ and tissue disorders and the ability to accommodate patients up to 350 lbs.
