CT Scanners

CT Scan

CT scanners, also known as CAT scans, stand for computerized axial tomography. A CT scan uses X-rays and a powerful computer to produce images of the body.

At St. Joseph, our CT scanners can capture multiple pictures in one rotation. The faster scanning times produces thinner slices and clearer resolution. This scanner allows health care professionals to identify disease processes at earlier stages and streamlines triages for emergency patients providing quicker feedback to surgeons. CT exams are also very useful in helping physicians perform accurate biopsies and look at structures inside your body.
