Computed Tomography (CT)  

safe dose

We understand that every patient is different when it comes to radiation imaging. Medical imaging helps your doctor with your care. That's why we perform only necessary medical imaging exams, and we make sure it's the right test and the right radiation dose for each patient, from adults to infants. Beverly Hospital, Lahey Outpatient Center, Danvers and Addison Gilbert Hospital utilize radiation dose techniques when scanning adults and children to minimize radiation exposure.

Beverly Hospital offers a complete range of Computed Tomography (CT) scans to diagnose heart, kidney, lung, liver, spine, and blood diseases; cancer, tumors, and cysts; as well as blood clots, hemorrhages and infections. The department also offers computed tomography angiography (CTA) to study, in precise anatomical detail, blood flow and assess disease progression in arterial and venous vessels. CTA optimally studies blood vessels without the need for arterial catheterization or invasive procedures.

In addition, CT colonography assists gastroenterologists in fully evaluating patients who are unable to complete conventional colonoscopy.

Patients benefit from advanced multi-slice imaging technology,  featuring enhanced 3D image quality, which expedites exam time. Cardiac CTAs are performed at the Cardiovascular Center at Lahey Outpatient Center, Danvers. Multi-slice technology provides a sharper image of moving organs as compared to traditional CT systems and is particularly useful in examining acutely ill and trauma patients who are unable to hold their breath.

If you have any questions, please ask your radiology professional before the test.
