CT Scan (CAT scan)

A CT scan, also known as a CAT (Computerized Axial Tomography) scan, is a special kind of x-ray that can produce pictures of a cross section of the body. CT scans provide clear pictures of soft tissues, such as the brain, sinuses, or the organs in the abdomen, to determine if there are injuries, tumors or disease.

CT scans are used for many diagnostic procedures. They can show brain structures including tumors, blood clots and enlarged ventricles. A CT scan of a body part can distinguish between bone, tissue, fat, gas and fluid. CT scans can detect if a growth is solid or fluid-filled and if an organ is normal in size or shape.

CT scans can be used to diagnose brain tumors, the spread of cancer, cysts, sinus disease, aneurysm, pancreatitis, kidney stones, liver disease, and more.

Edward offers CT Scans at the hospital in Naperville and four convenient outpatient locations (listed right).
