Computed Tomography (CT)

Alliance Community Hospital is one of the few area hospitals performing CT of the heart, aorta, coronary arteries, and blood vessels which is a fast, accurate tool for diagnosing coronary artery disease and heart problems.

Computed Tomography (CT or CAT scan) is a way of looking inside your body using a special camera. The images produced are cross-sectional, like the slices in a loaf of bread. During a CT exam the scanner takes multiple cross-sectional pictures. With the help of a computer, these individual images are reconstructed into an actual picture of various internal body parts. A CT scan provides much greater detail than the standard x-ray films and greatly enhances the doctor's ability to diagnose a medical condition.

Alliance Community Hospital is one of the few area hospitals performing CT of the heart, aorta, coronary arteries, and blood vessels which is a fast, accurate tool for diagnosing coronary artery disease and heart problems. These specialized studies can only be performed accurately on a state of the art 64 slice (or above) and specialized computer workstations. Our staff has had special training to offer these advanced services.

If you have any further questions, feel free to call our CT Department at 330-596-7794.
