CT Scans

 


A CT scanner combines computer technology with traditional x-rays so that detailed images can be made of the body’s tissues and vessels, generating data that is interpreted by a radiologist. It provides an important tool in diagnosing and monitoring many diseases and medical conditions. The CT scanner is doughnut-shaped with a hole in the center through which a special bed moves. Multiple cross-section images are made as the x-ray beam rotates 360 degrees around your body.


Carrus’ CT scanner is “open” which means the scan machine is open around you, does not touch you and is not confining. It should not be confused with an MRI scanner that is more of a tunnel-type structure. Even patients who suffer with claustrophobia find CAT scans to be simple, fast and easy.
