Starling Diagnostics, conveniently located in the Parkchester section of the Bronx, New York, offers cutting-edge computed tomography (CT) scans that can help diagnose a wide range of medical conditions, including:
- Internal injuries
- Spinal problems and skeletal injuries
- Lung disease
- Chest or abdominal pain
- Vascular and/or heart disease
A CT scan is a painless imaging procedure that uses many X-rays taken from different angles to create detailed, cross-sectional images of organs and tissues inside your body. It enables doctors to pinpoint the source of pain or injury, as well as any abnormalities, so your doctor can prescribe the appropriate treatment.
During your CT scan at Starling Diagnostics, low-dose X-rays rotate around you, producing a series of cross-sectional images of selected parts of your body. These images provide your physician with an unobstructed look at organs and structures not seen clearly on conventional X-rays.
The time it takes to complete a CT scan may vary between 5 and 10 minutes, depending on which part of your body is being analyzed and how many images are required. If the images are not clear enough after the first CT scan, you may be asked to undergo a second scan right away.
