Computed Tomography (CT) at Alliance Imaging


Computed Tomography Scans

Computed Tomography scans are a tried-and-true diagnostic tool.


In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health, over 80 million are performed annually in the United States alone. Unlike general X-ray exams, they offer more sophisticated, detailed images.


And we know that when it comes to medical imaging, precision and clarity are paramount.


That's why here at Alliance Imaging, we offer CT scans that provide you with detailed cross-sectional images and a comprehensive view of your body's internal structures to help our radiologists diagnose injuries or diseases with remarkable accuracy. They also help plan effective medical or surgical treatments.


When you visit Alliance Imaging

You'll be asked about your health history, including any previous medical conditions, surgeries, allergies, or any current medications. This information helps us ensure the safest and most effective scanning process.


Furthermore, depending on your specific scan, you may be asked to change into a hospital gown to ensure clear images free from interference caused by clothing.


The Scanning Process

You will be positioned comfortably on a cushioned table. This table moves slowly into our doughnut-shaped scanner as the images are taken. Some scans may require the use of IV or oral contrast agents–FDA-approved substances that help to enhance the visibility of certain body structures in the images. They provide a clearer distinction between normal and abnormal conditions, aiding in your accurate diagnosis.


Duration

Typically quick procedures, most scans take between 5 and 20 minutes, depending on the area being scanned and whether contrast is used. Our staff will inform you about the expected duration before it begins.
