CT stands for Computed (or computerized) Tomography. This procedure also is sometimes called computerized axial tomography, or CAT scan. A CT is a diagnostic procedure that uses special X-ray equipment to view inside the body. The CT offers more detail than a standard X-ray, because it provides cross-sectional pictures of the organ or structure.
CT scans are performed on an outpatient basis and on an inpatient basis for hospitalized patients. CT also may be performed for patients in the hospital’s emergency department, including trauma patients (after a car accident, for example).
CT imaging services include:
- CT scanning
- CT guided biopsy – to assess benign and malignant tumors
- CT angiography – to diagnose cardiovascular conditions
