Computed Tomography

Computed tomography (CT) combines X-rays and computer scans to create images of the body. The result is a detailed image that can show soft tissues, organs and bones.

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – White Rock has received accreditation in computed tomography (CT), and awarded a three-year term of accreditation in computed tomography (CT) as the result of a recent revie​w by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

Benefits of a CT Scan

A computed tomography (CT) scan uses X-rays to produce detailed images of structures inside the body. A CT scan is also called a computed axial tomography (CAT) scan. A CT scanner directs a series of X-ray pulses through the body. Each X-ray pulse lasts only a fraction of a second and represents a “slice” of the organ or area being studied. The slices or pictures are recorded on a computer and can be saved for further study.

Our advanced multi-slice CT unit completes a 3-D scan of any area of the body with one breath. Capable of generating multiple slices with each half-second gantry revolution, the extremely fast, high-resolution system provides improved image quality and diagnostic capabilities.
