Computed Tomography (CT Scan)

Palos Community Hospital offers the latest technology in Computed Tomography: the Dual Source Computed Tomography Scanner. By providing twice the power and double the image quality at half the radiation dose of traditional 64-slice scanners, this technology holds the promise of helping us more accurately detect cardiovascular disease and a host of other illnesses via the least invasive means possible.
A CT scan allows doctors to see the inner structure of organs, and is used to detect vascular problems, acute and chronic lung changes, strokes and brain aneurysms, tumors, kidney stones, organ damage, complex bone fractures and arterial blockages in any part of the body. They also are used for calcium scoring, a procedure that checks for build-up of calcium inside coronary arteries.
