CT Scan

Computed tomography (CT) scanning combines the use of a computer and X-rays passed through the body at different angles to produce clear three-dimensional cross-sectional images (slices) of the tissue being examined. CT scanning is fast becoming a standard diagnostic tool to examine the abdomen, chest, cardiac areas, brain, head and neck, and cervical spine. It is also utilized within the standard protocol of stroke care at Holy Name Medical Center's Primary Stroke Center. A contrast medium may be injected to make blood vessels, organs, or abnormalities show up more clearly. CT scanning is also used extensively in cancer care: to diagnose and stage the disease, to guide physicians during biopsies, to plan and simulate treatment, and then to monitor the effects of treatment.
