A computed tomography (CT) scan is a diagnostic imaging technique that utilizes several different angles of advanced x-ray technology to produce cross-sectional images of the bones, blood vessels, and tissues within the body. CT Scans are often performed with a positron emission tomography (PET) scan to create a sophisticated, noninvasive diagnostic study of the biochemistry and physiologic function of the human body. These images are more detailed than traditional X-ray imaging and provide our board-certified doctors with a full-spectrum view of your condition. CT scans, although performed in a tight space, are generally painless and a comfortable experience for most of our patients.
With the aid of computer processing, images are created showing organs, vessels, and body tissues with great clarity. Wooster Community Hospital uses state-of-the-art technology with our high-definition HD scanner.
Comprehensive CT Scan Services
CT scans are most commonly used in conjunction with a PET scan to produce detailed images of the inside of the human body. In addition to the high speed and quality images produced by the scanner, cardiac studies, vessel analysis, and 3D reconstructions can also be performed.
A CT scan is useful for diagnosing any number of conditions, including:
- Cancers, including lung cancer screening
- Cardiovascular disease
- Infectious disease
- Musculoskeletal (bone, muscle, and joint) disorders
- Diseases of the bowel and colon
- Lung disorders
- Brain diseases
- Sinus and nasal problems
The list above is by no means comprehensive. If you or your doctor believe you would benefit from a CT scan and/or PET scan, we encourage you to reach out to our team members at your earliest convenience.
