Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
At Fletcher Allen, we offer the latest technology in computed tomography, providing the most accurate images of your heart. A computed tomography or CT scan is a very detailed x-ray that provides information about internal tissues and organs in cross-sections, or thin slices.
A computer takes the cross-section x-rays and uses them to create three-dimensional images. Highly advanced CT scanners provide comprehensive images of organs within seconds with a high degree of accuracy.
