Need a CT Scan in Hudson County, NJ? Our 128-Slice CT Scan can be adapted to provide three-dimensional images for virtually any patient, young or old, of any size.

 A 128-slice CT scanner is a sophisticated medical imaging device used to capture detailed cross-sectional images of the body. The “128-slice” designation refers to the number of individual detector rows within the scanner, which allows for exceptionally high-resolution images. With this technology, doctors can obtain highly detailed images of organs, tissues, and bones in a relatively short amount of time, aiding in the diagnosis and monitoring of various medical conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and trauma. The increased number of slices enables faster scanning times and improved image quality compared to earlier generation CT scanners, making it a valuable tool in modern healthcare for precise diagnosis and treatment planning.

Understanding CT Scans: A Patient Guide

A CT (Computed Tomography) scan is a medical imaging procedure that helps doctors see inside your body with more detail than a regular X-ray. Before your appointment at our Radiology Clinic, here’s what you need to know about CT scans:

What is a CT Scan?

A CT scan uses X-ray technology and computer processing to create detailed cross-sectional images of your body’s internal structures. These images can show the soft tissues, blood vessels, and bones in various parts of your body.

Preparing for Your CT Scan

  • Instructions: You may receive specific instructions regarding eating, drinking, or medication adjustments before your scan, depending on the area being examined.
  • Clothing: Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. You may be asked to change into a gown.
  • Metal Objects: Remove any metal objects, such as jewelry, glasses, or dentures, as they can interfere with the image quality.
  • Contrast Material: In some cases, you may need to take a contrast material orally, by injection, or via enema. This helps certain areas show up better in the images.

During the Scan

  • Positioning: You’ll lie on a motorized table that slides into the CT scanner. It’s important to stay still during the scan to ensure clear images.
  • Time: The scan itself is quick, usually lasting only a few minutes, though the entire appointment may take about 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Noise: The machine may make buzzing or clicking sounds. This is normal.

After the Scan

  • Results: A radiologist will analyze the images and send a report to your doctor, who will discuss the findings with you.
  • Routine: You can typically return to your normal activities immediately after a CT scan.

Safety and Comfort

CT scans are generally safe and painless. The risk from radiation exposure is minimal, especially compared to the benefits of accurately diagnosing a condition. If you’re pregnant or have concerns about the contrast material, inform your healthcare provider.

Our team at the Radiology Clinic is committed to ensuring you have a comfortable and informative experience. If you have any questions or concerns about your upcoming CT scan, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
