CT Scan

A computed tomography (CT) scan, also known as a Computed Axial Tomography (CAT) scan, is a specialized X-ray procedure offered at Raleigh Radiology. During a CT scan, multiple images are taken and compiled into complete, cross-sectional pictures (or slices) of soft tissue, bone and blood vessels. The resulting images reveal details that are typically invisible or difficult to see in a traditional X-ray. Physicians rely on CT images to properly diagnose a variety of injuries, conditions and diseases. These scans often detect abnormalities earlier than a basic X-ray, resulting in a more successful treatment period.

A CT scan is considered a safe examination. While CT imaging does use radiation, the diagnostic benefits of the procedure generally outweigh the risks of radiation exposure. Unlike an MRI exam, CT scans can even be performed if you have a pacemaker. However, pregnant women should consult their doctor before the exam. He or she may suggest an alternative form of imaging to avoid exposing the fetus to radiation.
