CT SCAN of Thorax and Abdomen (Computed Tomography- CAT) - National Diagnostic Imaging October 25 2022 - Cleveland Ohio

What Is A Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan?

Computed tomography, or CT, scans are medical imaging tests that use ionizing radiation to create cross-sectional (slices) pictures inside selected areas of the body from different angles.

The images can show internal organs, blood vessels, soft tissues, and bones. CT scans combine a series of x-ray (radiography) images into a three-dimensional picture. Some CT procedures may use a contrast dye which allows healthcare providers to see specific organ(s).

A CT scan uses X-rays and computers to produce images of a cross-section of your body. When interpreting at CT scan, it is important to determine the orientation.

It takes pictures that show very thin “slices” of your bones, muscles, organs and blood vessels so that healthcare providers can see your body in great detail.

A computerized tomography (CT) scan combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles around your body and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images (slices) of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues inside your body. CT scan images provide more-detailed information than plain X-rays do.

Healthcare providers ask patients for a CT scan to detect, diagnose, or plan treatment for a particular disease or injury.

Common uses of CT scan include checking for:

  • Tumors
  • Infections
  • Blood clots
  • Internal bleeding

NDI Reads And Interprets CT Scans For Individual Patients And Imaging Centers

Because of COVID-19, many radiological practices have embraced teleradiology. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in early 2020, radiology practices and departments started to increase their use of teleradiology and virtual technology tools to maintain their workloads from remote locations.

Chest CT has a potential role in the diagnosis of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) - November 16 2022 - National Diagnostic Imaging - Cleveland Ohio

Chest CT has a potential role in the diagnosis, detection of complications, and prognostication of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Chest CT is valuable to detect both alternative diagnoses and complications of COVID-19 (acute respiratory distress syndrome, pulmonary embolism, and heart failure), while its role for prognostication requires further investigation.

This study aimed to assess the characteristic chest X-ray features of COVID-19 and correlate them with clinical outcomes of patients. Chest CT imaging may be used to stratify the severity of lung involvement and to predict outcomes in COVID-19, which in turn may assist physicians with proper triaging of patients and allocation of resources.

Knowledge of the natural temporal evolution of lung abnormalities in COVID-19 may be helpful to radiologists in determining the stage of disease and in distinguishing them from potential complications when evaluating chest CT examinations.

Computed tomography imaging studies are read by National Diagnostic Imaging on behalf of imaging centers, private individuals, physicians, radiologists, hospitals, office-based imaging practices and outpatient clinics.  Mobile imaging studies are welcomed, and we take the time to provide accurate detailed reports.

About Computed Tomography

Computed tomography (CT) is a diagnostic imaging test used to create detailed images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels.

The cross-sectional images generated during a CT scan can be reformatted in multiple planes, and can even generate three-dimensional images which can be viewed on a computer monitor, printed on film or transferred to electronic media.

CT scanning is often the best method for detecting many different cancers since the images allow your doctor to confirm the presence of a tumor and determine its size and location.

CT is fast, painless, noninvasive and accurate. In emergency cases, it can reveal internal injuries and bleeding quickly enough to help save lives.

NDI Radiologists Read And Interpret Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) Scans of the Brain - October 25 2022 - National Diagnostic Imaging - Cleveland Ohio

NDI Radiologists Read And Interpret Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) Scans of the Brain

A CT of the brain is a noninvasive diagnostic imaging procedure that uses special X-rays measurements to produce horizontal, or axial, images (often called slices) of the brain. Brain CT scans can provide more detailed information about brain tissue and brain structures than standard X-rays of the head, thus providing more data related to injuries and/or diseases of the brain.

Computed tomography (CT) of the head uses special x-ray equipment to help assess head injuries, severe headaches, dizziness, and other symptoms of aneurysm, bleeding, stroke, and brain tumors. Learn how to read a head CT, here.

NDI Radiologists Read Computed Tomography (CT) Scans To Detect Tumors And Cancer

Doctors at National Diagnostic Imaging use a computed tomography (CT) scan, also called a CAT scan, to find cancer. A CT scan takes pictures of the inside of the body using x-rays taken from many angles. A computer combines these pictures into a detailed, 3-dimensional image. This image will show abnormal areas and any tumors.

What Is A CAT Scan?

A computed tomography scan — also called a CT or CAT scan — is an imaging test that lets doctors see inside a person’s body. As a patient lies still on a table, special X-ray equipment takes pictures from different angles to create cross-sections of the body. The “slices” can be looked at individually or together to create 3-D views of tissues and organs, according to the National Cancer Institute. The test is painless and usually done on an outpatient basis.

How to Read a CT Scan

A computed tomography (CT) scan can create cross-sectional images of any part of your body using special X-rays and a computer. This type of radiology study is an important part of diagnosing medical diseases like strokes, cancers, and infections in the abdomen like appendicitis. You can learn to read a CT scan if you understand the normal anatomy and what the shades of white, grey, and black on the films mean.

CT Head Interpretation

The CT head scan is a computer-generated series of images from multiple X-rays taken at different levels. Fine X-ray beams passed through the subject are absorbed to different degrees by different tissues and the transmitted radiation is measured by a scanning device.

  • Interpretation: Use a systematic approach to viewing the anatomical structures in the many slices prepared by the CT scanner.
  • Blood
  • Cisterns
  • Brain Matter
  • Ventricles
  • Bone

What Does My CT Scan Tell?

CT scans show a slice, or cross-section, of the body. The image shows your bones, organs, and soft tissues more clearly than standard x-rays. CT scans can show a tumor’s shape, size, and location. They can even show the blood vessels that feed the tumor – all without having to cut into the patient.

A Systematic Approach To The Interpretation Of CT Head

A systematic approach to the interpretation of CT (computed tomography) of the head for the emergency physician. The emergency physician should be adept at the interpretation of computed tomography of the head, particularly for life-threatening processes where awaiting a radiologist interpretation may unnecessarily delay care.
