overview

Computed Tomography

A CT scan (also referred to as a CAT scan) uses X-rays to make detailed pictures of structures inside of the body.

The radiation dose patients receive during any exam is something our radiologists take very seriously. Each member of our staff has taken the "Image Wisely and Image Gently" Pledge with the American College of Radiology, which states that each patient's CT scan is customized to the patient according to their height, weight and age, to minimize radiation exposure. By following these standards, we are able to claim that CT scans at SDMI are the safest in all of Nevada.

frequently asked questions

What can you tell me about radiation exposure?

Each patient is an individual, so radiation doses differ from person to person. SDMI customizes radiation doses for each patient, based on a variety of personal factors. This way, the LEAST amount of radiation is used to receive the HIGHEST QUALITY results.

How is the scan done?

In some cases, a dye called contrast material may be used. The contrast may be administered via an IV or an oral contrast and makes it easier to see structures or organs more clearly on the CT images. During the test, you will rest on a table that is attached to the CT scanner and it will send X-rays through the area of the body being studied. Each rotation of the scanner provides a picture of a thin slice of the organ or larger area.

How long does it take?

Scans are usually completed in just a few seconds to minutes.
