Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan

The computerized tomography (CT) scan is actually a computer-enhanced X-ray procedure. CT scans create a three-dimensional view (called a "slice") of a particular body structure.

The computer assembles the different "slices" to create a three-dimensional view of the structure, clearly showing both bone and soft tissue. The hospital will soon offer virtual colonoscopy scans and cardiac scans.

CT scanning are available at these locations:

Bradley Memorial Campus

A 16-slice CT scanner is used to diagnose a variety of conditions, and can conduct non-invasive angiographies to examine blood vessels. Because the 16-slice scanner is faster and more accurate, patients don't have to hold their breath as long.

New Britain General Campus

A 64-slice PET-CT allows for separate CT or PET scans or combined scans. PET-CT scans can be used to diagnose cancer, coronary artery disease and other conditions.

New Britain's Emergency Department also has a 4-slice CT scanner and a 64-slice CT scanner for immediate diagnosis in emergency cases.

Central Connecticut Primary Care

A 4-slice CT scanner for more convenient exams right in the practice office. All of the hospital's CT scanners are accredited by the American College of Radiology.
