A low dose Computed Tomography (CT) scan provides an image of the inside of a patient’s body with minimal radiation. This reduces risks for the patient by limiting overall radiation exposure in association with the medical imaging study. Developments in CT technology by Siemens have resulted in considerable improvements in low dose equipment, making higher doses of radiation increasingly unnecessary.

In this type of medical imaging study, the patient lies on a table while the CT Scanner takes a series of images, known as slices, of the inside of the body. The slices can be reassembled in a computer program to create a three dimensional image to reveal interesting structures, abnormal growths, and other features.

Patients who receive a low dose scan have a much lower amount of radiation exposure. The equipment can also use multiple detectors, allowing several slices to be captured at once. This reduces the amount of time the patient has to spend in the machine and also lowers the overall dose. Technicians can carefully compute the dosage settings on the equipment to tailor them to the patient, producing a low dose CT scan that will provide exceptional resolution with the least risks for the patient.

FAQ About CT and CAT Scans

A CT or CAT scan, also known as a computed tomography scan, is a medical imaging method that uses special X-ray equipment to obtain cross-sectional pictures of the body. The CT computer displays these pictures as detailed images of organs, bones, and other tissues. This type of imaging can be very helpful in diagnosing injuries or fractures or in identifying disease in its earliest stages.

You should wear loose fitting clothes and women are encouraged to wear a sports bra or a bra with no underwire.  For better imaging, it is recommended that you refrain from caffeine for 4 hours prior to your scan.  We will have you remove all contents of your pockets and your belt.  You will lie down on a patient table in your street clothes.  Our CT Technician will place 4 EKG electrodes on your chest.  The scan will be programmed based on your specific body characteristics.  The CT system is shaped like a large doughnut and the center of it is called the gantry. The patient table will move slowly through the gantry. Once the table and you are in the correct position, your CT Technician may ask you to hold your breath or not to move. You’ll hear the CT system, which makes a low whirring sound.  The entire scan takes approximately 10 seconds.

CT scans use X-rays, invisible beams of ionizing radiation that pass through the body and are altered by different tissues to create images. At our facility, we are dedicated to achieving the highest levels of patient safety. For this reason, we use CT imaging technology that enables excellent quality images using low radiation doses. Our investment in low dose CT technology is part of our ongoing commitment to your health and well-being.
