Computerized Tomography (CT Scan)

Computerized tomography is a noninvasive procedure performed in the Radiology Department at Chester River Hospital Center.

Computed axial tomography (CAT or CT) is an innovative way of looking at the inside of your body. The images it produces are cross-sectional—patterned much like slices of bread. By taking a series of such images, a CAT scan can create a multidimensional view of your body. This greatly enhances the radiologist`s ability to accurately diagnose medical conditions.

The main feature of the CAT scanner is a large ring. As the patient passes through the ring, the x-ray tube rotates around the patient 360 degrees and takes a picture or “slice.” After many such slices, the computer has enough information to combine various segments the picture and create views of the internal organs

CAT scans of the body and head can be used to diagnose a wide variety of medical conditions.
