A Computed Tomography (CT) scan is a safe and painless procedure used to capture dramatic cross-sectional images of the body.
Many people think the scanner looks like a giant 'doughnut.' During the scan, the area of interest will be passed through the scanner's doughnut hole, also known as the gantry. Using low dose X-rays, the CT scanner will take pictures of your body from different angles.
Oregon Imaging Centers offers CT scans for all parts of the anatomy. You can review information specific to your scan by selecting from the 'study type' menu in the left column.
