64-Slice CT Scanning: Diagnostic Imaging for Adults and Children

CT scanning at Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) is offered for both adult and pediatric patients. CT scanning can be useful for viewing internal organs and structures, tissues, bones and tumors.

What is CT?

CT stands for Computed (or computerized) Tomography. This procedure also is sometimes called computerized axial tomography, or CAT scan. A CT is a diagnostic procedure that uses special X-ray equipment to view inside the body. The CT offers more detail than a standard X-ray, because it provides cross-sectional pictures of the organ or structure.
