Computed Tomography

Computed tomography (CT) scanning, also called CAT scanning, is a noninvasive, painless x-ray procedure that obtains cross-sectional images of body parts that cannot be seen on a standard x-ray.

At Overlook Imaging – Union, we have a 64-slice CT system that is more comfortable for patients and capable of producing high-quality images faster while using as much as 40 percent less radiation than traditional CT technology.

Preparing for a CT Scan

  • Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing; you may be given a gown to wear during the procedure

  • Leave metal objects, including jewelry, eyeglasses, dentures and hairpins, at home or remove them prior to your exam; you may also be asked to remove hearing aids

  • Do not to eat or drink for several hours before the exam, especially if a contrast material will be used

  • Women should inform their physician and the CT technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant or are breastfeeding

CT Scan Results

Our radiologists are experts in supervising and interpreting radiology examinations. They will analyze your CT images and send a signed report to your primary care physician or the physician who referred you for the exam. He or she will discuss the results with you.

Locations and Appointments

Overlook Imaging – Union Campus offers extended hours for CT exams and free, public parking is available. CT scans are also available at Overlook Medical Center’s Radiology Department and 1 Springfield Avenue in Summit.
