A CT scan uses x-rays to obtain detailed images of any part of the body. This procedure is performed with a CT scanner, a specialized x-ray system that produces ultra thin, slice-like pictures of your body. CT scans are used to diagnose strokes, blood clots in the lung, and most all diseases of the chest, abdomen and pelvis. They are also useful when a patient has suffered trauma to the spine, body or extremities.
Serving all of Northern Virginia, our CT scans are just one portion of our state of the art imaging and radiology department. For more information, visit our main medical imaging page.
