What is Computed Tomography?

Computed Tomography uses special x-ray equipment to obtain information from different angles around the body. Computers are then used to process the information and create cross-sectional images that appear as "slices" of the body and organs.

A CT (computerized tomography) scanner, sometimes called CAT (computerized axial tomography), is a special kind of x-ray machine for examining structures and organs within the body. CT is fast, patient friendly and has the unique ability to image a combination of soft tissue, bone, and blood vessels.

What should I expect?

During the exam, you will lie on a motorized table that will move you into round opening of the scanner. You may hear humming, buzzing or clicking sounds as the CT scanner moves to reposition you for additional images. CT scans are painless. Some exams may require oral contrast consumption or an injection of contrast material.

What if I need a contrast injection?

CT contrast is an organically bound iodine material that is used to make some abnormalities easier to see. Be sure to tell your technologist if you have had a reaction to contrast in the past or if you a particularly sensitive to medications.

How should I prepare?

You may be asked to avoid normal eating or drinking for a period of time. You should continue medications prescribed by your doctor unless informed otherwise.

You may be asked to wear a hospital gown and remove any metal objects and jewlery.

*Always inform the technologist if you're pregnant, diabetic, allergic to any foods or drugs, or are being treated for any type of infection.


How do I get my results?

After your study is complete, a board certified radiologist will evaluate the image results and send a full report to your doctor, who will discuss the results with you.
