CT is unique in its ability to simultaneously image soft tissue along with bone and blood vessels. It is exceptional at differentiating soft tissue structures, and is one of the best tools for studying the lungs and the abdomen. CT is considered the primary and best means of evaluating most suspected pathologies in the chest, abdomen, and pelvis.
CT scans provide excellent visualizations of joints and the underlying bone anatomy, allowing for both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional evaluation. CT can also complement MRI in evaluating fractures associated with joint injuries.
Unlike conventional X-Rays, CT has the ability to show complex brain structures, and is a valuable tool in the detection of tumors, blood clots, enlarged ventricles, and other brain disorders, CT scans complement MRI in evaluating the brain and spine. This is especially helpful for patients with acute neurological problems or other trauma.
Coronary CT Angiogram
A Coronary CT Angiogram is a minimally invasive procedure, designed to view both the calcified and non-calcified plaque in your coronary arteries. This study provides an accurate alternative to Traditional Coronary Angiography without the invasiveness and risk.
