The Holy Cross Urgent Care and Imaging Center offers state-of-the-art 64-slice CT (Computed Tomography) scanning for our patients. This is a non-invasive procedure that uses advanced X-ray technology to provide detailed images of the inside of the human body. Cross-sectional views produced by the CT enable physicians to see and evaluate multiple structures in all areas of the body. It can be used to identify diseases and sources of internal pain, diagnose internal growths and tumors, and detect blood clots. CT also can examine bone density to screen for osteoporosis, detect spinal injuries and problems with disks in the spinal column.
The Holy Cross Urgent Care and Imaging Center’s scanner creates 64 high-resolution anatomical images per rotation. This will decrease scan times to several seconds, less than 15 seconds in most cases.
Scans are offered Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
