A young patient watches a video while preparing for a CT scan.
Computer Tomography (CT) scans are a type of X-ray that allow doctors to see inside the body to diagnose medical conditions. CT scans are painless and can provide specialists with detailed information on what’s happening within the body.
SSM Cardinal Glennon has two 128-slice CT scanners that offer the safest imaging in the region for children through special dose reduction software. Advanced imaging gives physicians more detailed information than ever before to help determine the best treatment plan for patients.
The new technology focuses on a child’s comfort. Children can watch their favorite video on a flat-panel screen in the CT suite and choose their favorite colored theme for the room.
