CT Scans at Guthrie
CT scans, also known as CAT scans or computed tomography, are X-ray pictures created by a computer to show the body in cross sections or "slices." There are many kinds of CT scans for a variety of diseases. The Guthrie team will coordinate with your provider to tailor the CT scan to you and your health care plan, using a range of advanced scanners, including 128 detector dual-energy scanners. CT scan images usually provide much more information and detail than X-rays and are available at all Guthrie hospital facilities and several regional offices.
In addition, Guthrie offers cardiac computed angiography, a non-invasive imaging technology that provides imaging of the heart and its surrounding blood vessels. Providers use these images to help diagnose coronary artery disease or problems with the structure and function of the heart. Coronary artery calcium scoring can be used to predict heart attack risk. Cardiac CT can help providers treat heart disease and determine if current treatments are effective. In some cases, CT angiography may prevent the need for more invasive tests and is available at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre.
