Computed Tomography (CT)
What is a CT scan?
Computed Tomography (CT) is based on the x-ray principle. This high-speed diagnostic system acts as an x-ray that passes through the body where it is absorbed or weakened at differing levels creating multiple x-ray beams of different strengths. This x-ray profile is registered on film, thus creating an image.
The technique is painless and can provide extremely accurate images of the body's structure. Vantage Diagnostic Imaging's CT scanner is called a 'spiral' or 'helical' camera and provides rapid, accurate visualization of internal organs for diagnostic and screening studies.
A CT scan is a very quick procedure most lasting under 10 minutes.
