CT Scanning

Multislice CT Scanning for Diagnostic Accuracy

Sophisticated multislice CT scanning is available throughout Willis-Knighton, in both hospital and outpatient settings. The scanner creates cross-sectional images, or slices, that show the most intricate details of bones, organs, arteries and additional tissues. Computed tomography of coronary arteries is offered as a noninvasive way to evaluate nonemergency chest pain.

  • Higher Quality Images 
  • Noninvasive Images of the Lungs, Heart & Arteries 
  • 3D Modeling of Bones and Soft Tissue


Willis-Knighton features advanced SPECT CT scanning. This imaging technology combines the precision alignment of two types of images, fusing them together.  This test uses nuclear imaging to allow the doctor to review the function of internal organs. It doesn’t simply create an image to review, it shows how the organs work.

Here are a few advantages:

  • Uses low-dose CT images
  • Helps physician provide a definitive diagnosis
  • Helps to eliminate inaccuracies that can occur due to patient position, the surface of the imaging couch or internal changes from one imaging session to the next

It may be used to help detect or review the following conditions:

  • Tumors
  • Thyroid and parathyroids
  • Skeleton disorders
  • Heart and brain disorders
  • Pulmonary disorders
  • Lymphatic system disorders
  • Inflammations
  • Infections
