Office-Based CT Scanning: How Does It Work?

Office-Based CT Scan at ADVENT

Establishing a proper care plan for treating your sinus or other sleep concerns is dependent on making an accurate diagnosis. ADVENT’s approach to CT (computerized tomography) scanning takes the inconvenience of a hospital visit and unnecessary wait times out of the equation.

 

At ADVENT, we offer state-of-the-art, office-based CT scanning technology to make comfort and convenience our top priority. But first, let’s cover the basics:

 

What is a CT Scan?

A CT scan combines a series of X-ray images from different angles around your head. It uses a computer process to create cross-section images of your bones, blood vessels and soft tissue.

How is a CT Scan Different Than an X-Ray?

A CT scan combines a series of X-ray images. A CT scan provides a diagnostic examination of your head’s internal structure, where an X-ray is used to detect dislocations and fractures of the bone, as well as to detect cancers and pneumonia.
