Types of CT Scans

Neurological

Unlike conventional X-rays, CT scans have the ability to show complex brain structures and are a valuable tool in the detection of tumors, blood clots, enlarged ventricles and other brain disorders. CT scans complement MRIs in evaluating the brain and spine. This is especially helpful for patients with acute neurological problems or other trauma.

Musculoskeletal/Orthopedic

CT scans provide excellent visualizations of joints and the underlying bone anatomy, allowing for both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional evaluation. A CT scan can also complement an MRI in evaluating fractures associated with joint injuries.

Virtual colonoscopy uses a multi-slice, spiral CT scan of the abdomen, which allows us to evaluate your colon for polyps and early colon cancer by creating computer images similar to those seen by conventional colonoscopy. Also, the exam preparation is easier for patients and the procedure is as sensitive in the detection of colon cancer as traditional colonoscopy. The exam time is also quicker; virtual colonoscopy typically takes 20 minutes.

Coronary CT Angiogram

Coronary CT angiogram is a minimally invasive procedure designed to view both the calcified and non-calcified plaque in your coronary arteries. This exam provides an accurate alternative to traditional coronary angiogram without the invasiveness and risk.
