Benefits of CT Scanning

  • Provides very detailed images of many types of tissue as well as the lungs, bones, and blood vessels.
  • Fast and simple.
  • In emergency cases, they can reveal internal injuries and bleeding quickly enough to help save lives.
  • Less sensitive to patient movement than MRI.
  • Can be performed if you have an implanted medical device of any kind, unlike MRI.
  • Provides real-time imaging, making it a good tool for guiding minimally invasive procedures such as needle biopsies and needle aspirations of many areas of the body, particularly the lungs, abdomen, pelvis and bones.
  • Diagnosis determined by CT scanning may eliminate the need for exploratory surgery
  • No radiation remains in a patient’s body.
