Computerized Tomography (CT)

Computerized tomography, also known as a CT scan, allows physicians to see cross-sectional images of your body. Those cross-sectional images––often called “slices”––are created from a combination of X-rays and computer technology.

During your visit to the CT Department, an Inspira technologist will begin by asking you several questions about your medical history to determine if there are any special changes to be made during your exam. That information will also be made available to the Inspira radiologist who will interpret your exam, so they have a comprehensive understanding of your health.

Inspira technologists will perform a CT scan to take highly detailed images of various parts of the body to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Abdomen and pelvis: To check for appendicitis, cancer, trauma or kidney stones.
  • Brain: To check for bleeding, tumors, blood clots or signs of stroke.
  • Chest: To check for a mass, pneumonia, trauma or even a collapsed lung.
  • Extremities: To check for bone abnormalities and infections.
  • Soft tissue in neck: To check for lump or mass.
  • Spine: To check for a herniated disc, trauma, or arm or leg numbness and weakness.
