What We Do

​A computed tomography (CT) scan uses X-rays to make detailed pictures of structures inside the body. The CT scanner sends x-rays through the body area being studied. Each rotation of the scanner takes less than a second and provides a picture of a thin slice of the organ or area of interest. CT scan can be used to study all parts of your body such as the chest, abdomen, pelvis, and head. It can take pictures of body organs such as liver, kidneys, pancreas, and lungs. It can also study blood vessels, bones and the spinal cord.
