Aug. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- Imaging Specialists perform CT scans with chest shields at their Mt. Pleasant facility.
A CT scan is a medical imaging exam that produces cross-sectional images. It is a special type of x-ray that produces high resolution images of the body and can distinguish bone, tissue, fat, gas and fluid. It can often replace other diagnostic techniques such as exploratory surgery and other invasive procedures. This procedure is commonly used to detect or rule out tumors, blood clots, gastrointestinal, enlarged lymph nodes, neurological, back problems, lung cancer and many other disorders.
Imaging Specialists, a free standing imaging center in Charleston, provides CT scans as one of the many services they offer.

The purpose of a CT (computed tomography) scan is to:

   Provide detailed images for detecting disease.
   Useful in monitoring  progress during or after treatment.
   Determine if a growth is solid or fluid-filled, and if an organ’s size and shape are normal.

At Imaging Specialists, a technologist will position the patient on the examination table. They  will then be moved into the doughnut-shaped scanner.
Oral sedation is available to patients for this exam. After the exam the radiologist will provide your physician with the results of your CT scan. The physician can then determine your best treatment options.
