CT Scan

What Is a CT Scan?

By using computer enhanced X-rays, CT scans can distinguish between bone, tissue, fat, gas and fluid for clear results that help your medical provider diagnose the problem and prescribe an appropriate course of treatment. CT scans are used to detect and diagnose:

  • Back problems
  • Blood clots
  • Brain tumors
  • Cancer
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Pancreatic disease
  • Stroke

How Results Are Provided
