CT (Computerised Tomography)

What is a CT

A CT or CAT scanner is a doughnut shaped machine that uses advanced x-ray technology to take pictures of your body. A computer then reconstructs the cross-sectional pictures of your body, called slices or sections. CT can be used to see inside the brain or any areas of the body that cannot be seen sufficiently well with regular x-ray examinations. Recent advancements in CT technology now make it possible to diagnose certain diseases earlier and more accurately than with other imaging tools. Our radiology practice uses the most advanced scanner technology available, providing images of exceptional quality and the lowest possible radiation dose. Our new 64 slice scanner allows us to perform advanced 3-D reconstructions.
