Using X-Rays and Computer Technology for Clearer Results

A CT Scan is a procedure which uses x-rays combined with computer technology to provide a clear picture of bones, organs and soft tissues inside the body. Trinity offers the latest technology with the iCT scanner. The system is designed to reduce a patient's exposure to X-rays up to 80% compared to other CT scanners.

The CT exam involves x-ray pictures or "slices" take while the CT scanner rotates around the body part being imaged. The iCT is able realize up to 256 slices. The computer then puts the pictures together on a computer monitor. The images can provide many different "views" that x-rays alone cannot. The images are then read by a radiologist (doctor who specializes in radiological medicine) and then a report is made and sent to your physician.

Exams Include:

CT Head, Chest, Abdomen and Pelvis, Spine

CT Calcium Scoring for heart disease risk

CT Biopsies for lung, liver and various other cancers

 

Our CT technology is able to produce clear 3D images of an entire organ, including the heart and brain with ability to detect life threatening illnesses at an early stage, including heart disease, cancer, stroke, and lung disease.
