What is a CT Scan?
Because contrast agents contain iodine, which causes an allergic reaction in some individuals, be sure to tell the technologist, nurse, or radiologist if you have had an allergic reaction to these agents before, or if you have any other allergies.We use nonionic contrast exclusively which is less risk to these patients.
Benefits of a CT Scan
CT scanning machines are powerful devices that harness radiation waves to produce 3D imaging of specific parts of the body. The benefits of CT scans include: CT scans can image bone, soft tissue and blood vessels at the same time. No radiation remains in the person’s body after the scan.
Risks of a CT Scan
CT scans have many benefits that outweigh this small potential risk. Doctors use the lowest dose of radiation possible to obtain the needed medical information. Also, newer, faster machines and techniques require less radiation than was previously used.
When the exam is complete, a radiologist will review your images electronically. Your physician will receive a report and images detailing the findings from your exam within 24 hours
