A Computerized Tomography (CT) scan is a highly efficient and accurate diagnostic imaging test that uses radiation and computer processing to create cross-sectional images (or slices) of the bones, blood vessels, internal organs, and soft tissue. A CT scan can visualize nearly all parts of the body to diagnose and monitor disease, identify injury, and provide surgical guidance. The images obtained are computer processed in different planes (angles), including 3D.
WVU Medicine is the only site in the state to have three of the most advanced 640-slice volume scanners in the industry. Our state-of-the-art scanners allow imaging of patients of all ages and body types.
The CT team of physicians and technologists is committed to providing the highest quality of imaging services in a safe and efficient environment. All technologists are required to be board certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Our quality is also enhanced by our advanced programs in research and education.
