Computerized Tomography (CT)
A CT scan provides cross-sectional x-rays or “slices” of the body which the computer assembles to provide a more detailed visualization of the internal organs and soft tissues. Because a CT scan uses an ultra-thin, low dose X-ray beam, radiation exposure is minimized. Sitron-Hammel’s CT scanners perform multi-slice spiral scans — the newest and fastest scanning technology available. As a result, your exam is considerably faster than conventional CT systems, usually taking only 10 to 15 minutes.
