Now introducing our 16-slice LightSpeed with ASiR CT machine

16-slice LightSpeed with ASiR CT machine

A CT scan is an advanced type of x-ray that uses a computer to process the image. Rather than being stationary, as with a traditional x-ray, the x-ray tube moves around the body, creating multiple cross-sectional images. A CT scan may be preferable for views of hard tissue like bones and cartilage as well as images of the neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis. Additionally, we are able to do CT angiography which is a technique used to visualize arterial and venous vessels in the body. This ranges from arteries serving the brain to arteries that bring blood to the lungs, kidneys, arms, and legs.

Lexington Diagnostic Center is proud to be a part of the Image Gently® and Image Wisely® campaigns.  We are committed to reducing the risks posed to adults and children as a result of radiation received from medical imaging.
