Often referred to as a CT scan, computed tomography is an imaging test in which a part of the body is X-rayed from different angles and combined by a computer to produce cross-sectional pictures of internal organs. In some cases, a dye is injected to clarify the image. This test can help diagnose tumors, hemorrhages, head injuries and bone abnormalities. Progress West optimizes protocols to utilize the lowest amount of radiation during this test.
Our highly trained radiology technologists at Progress West perform the test in the CT suite of our Imaging Center. The radiologist will review your images and communicate directly with your referring doctor, who will discuss the results with you.
