CT Scanning

A CT (computed tomography) Scanner is a computer-driven X-ray machine that takes cross-sectional pictures of parts of the internal organs, bones, soft tissues and blood vessels within the body, allowing radiologists to build three-dimensional images. The patient is usually in the department approx 15 to 20 minutes, with the actual scan itself taking only minutes.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is done without the use of X-rays. The MRI scanner is a large magnet that makes water molecules inside the body move. The MRI computer detects this movement and converts it into a picture. Each exam takes from 20 to 60 minutes. St. Luke's has state-of-the-art MRI equipment at each of our four campuses.
