CT Scans use a series of x-rays to create cross sections of the inside of the body, including bones, blood vessels, and soft tissues. During the exam you will lie on a table that slides into the scanner, which looks like a large donut. The x-ray tube rotates around you to take images. The duration of the exam is typically 10-15 minutes. CT Scans are used to diagnose injuries from trauma, bone fractures, tumors and cancers, vascular disease, heart disease, infections, and to guide biopsies. If your doctor has ordered a CT Scan for you, trust in Specialty Imaging Associates as the premier choice for diagnostic medical imaging.
