A general X-ray exam of the body is used to help diagnose a wide variety of conditions. Digital X-ray systems, such as the one we use both at our Hospital and our Outpatient Imaging Center, require no X-ray film, and images are ready virtually immediately, which helps speed diagnosis so treatment can begin faster.
A CT uses a moving X-ray tube and computers to acquire images, analyze the data and display all parts of the body in sections including 3D images. Some exams require the use of a contrast medium to help visualize certain parts inside the body.
Having a CT Scan?
You may be instructed by your physician to be well-hydrated but avoid solid food four to six hours prior to the exam. Also remember:
- Inform your doctor if you have iodine or shellfish allergies and if you have a history of asthma.
- Let your physician know if you are pregnant since pregnant women should avoid exposure from X-rays used in CT scans and other medical exams.
- You may be asked to hold your breath for several seconds and to remain motionless during the short time the image is taken by the scanner.
- After your trouble-free exam, all normal activities may be resumed unless otherwise noted by your physician.
