Computed Tomography

Computed tomography (CT) captures detailed images of the inside of your body. We provide highly accurate CT images and reports that enable your physician to accurately diagnose and treat your condition.

Indiana University Health board certified radiologists are experts in reading CT images. We also have board certified radiologists who specialize in reading images of specific areas of the body.

We treat you with care and respect when you come to us for a CT scan. Our staff is trained to help you feel at ease, and our technologists take special care to ensure your comfort and safety.

The IU Health system offers many CT options. Among these are specialized CT machines called large bore scanners that create 3-D images of your colon. We also have positron emission tomography (PET) scanners to detect conditions such as cancer and heart disease.

How We Can Help

How We Can Help

Computed Tomography Treatment Information

CT is a scan using X-rays, which are forms of radiant energy. X-rays penetrate the body, which allows a radiologist to produce pictures of internal structures. The CT machine rotates a radiation source around your body very quickly and gathers image data from multiple X-ray beams. The data is sent to a computer that turns it into the detailed picture your physician needs to make an accurate diagnosis.

We have procedures that minimize the amount of radiation you receive from a CT scan. National guidelines and safety standards help us calculate the exact amount of radiation necessary according to the image your physician needs. For children, we have special procedures for determining the dose of radiation by age, weight and type of image needed. As part of our dedication to patient safety, IU Health Radiology is involved in research about ways to further reduce the amount of radiation used for CT scans.

CT is a very useful tool for diagnosing a variety of conditions. We have techniques for creating CT images of different parts of the body. Our services include:
