Computed tomography (CT), also called a CAT scan, uses X-ray and computer equipment to produce cross-sectional images from of body tissues and organs. CT imaging is useful because it can show several types of tissue, such as lung, bone, soft tissue, and blood vessels.
Low Dose Radiation CT Scans
Medical Arts Radiology is committed to minimizing radiation exposure without compromising image quality. Our CT scans use advanced radiation reducing technology, dramatically cutting radiation exposure while giving extraordinary high-definition images. We participate in the American College of Radiology “Image Wisely” campaign, whose goal is to ensure patients receive the lowest radiation dose to achieve a diagnosis.
Always on the forefront of new technologies, Medical Arts is proud to be the first imaging center on Long Island to offer SafeCT® in all of our locations. This latest FDA-approved technology allows for up to an 80% reduction in radiation while maintaining superior image quality.
If your doctor refers you for a low-dose CT scan, be sure to request Medical Arts Radiology. To schedule an appointment, contact the Long Island imaging center nearest you or request an appointment online now.
