CTscan.JPGComputerized tomography, also known as a “CAT scan,” is a medical diagnostic imaging tool that allows the visualization of internal structures within the human body. This aids physicians in diagnosing disease, viewing abnormalities and assessing the extent of trauma damage.

Our 32-slice CT scanner uses a low radiation dose to create high-resolution, digital images. A fast processing speed and simplified staff workflow allows a quick patient scan time and faster diagnosis from care providers.

The CT system also has a built-in emergency scan mode, allowing staff to quickly start and finish emergency exams. Its table holds up to 500 pounds for bariatric patients.

Betty Behrens explains how a CT scan ruled out one diagnosis and helped emergency room doctors confirm another.
