Computed Tomography (CT) - Crozer-Keystone Health System - PA

Computed Tomography (CT)

  • CT Scanner
  • CT of the brain

Computed Tomography (CT or CAT scan) is a noninvasive diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to produce horizontal, or axial, images (often called slices) of the body. A CT scan directs multiple narrow beams of X-rays (radiation) around a specific body site that create a multi-dimensional view of a patient’s body. This enhances a physician’s ability to accurately diagnose conditions such as:

  • Trauma
  • Tumors
  • Kidney stones
  • Internal bleeding

Crozer-Keystone also offers advanced 64-slice CT scanners and SPECT/CT technology at select locations.
