What is It Like to Have a CT Scan?

16 Slice CT ScannerIt may sound intimidating, but a 16 slice scanner is really just a simple imaging technique that allows your doctors to make informed decisions about any condition you may have and plan accordingly. That said, you may be asking yourself, “What is it like getting a CT scan?” The team at Middletown Medical Imaging is here to calm your nerves and let you know exactly what happens!

Basically, when you are scanned, all you have to do is lie down on a scanning bed and let the machinery do the work. The scanner, in our case a Hitachi 16-slice tomography scanner, will pull you through a giant hole in the center, slowly taking images of your chest, abdomen, urinary tract, and other parts of your body. That’s it! There is no stress and nothing to worry about!

Our 16 slice CT scanner is very efficient, which means we’ll be able to get the information to your doctor quickly. When you need to know as soon as possible, then Middletown Medical Imaging is here to help you.
