CT Scans and Your Safety

Our commitment to low dose


Your safety drives our imaging care decisions. Our goal is to always provide the highest quality diagnostic images with the least amount of radiation possible for each patient. In fact, our CT scanners are equipped with special dose reduction software aimed to help us meet that objective.



Exposure to radiation during your CT exam can be of concern. We understand those concerns and take the following steps to ensure your safety:

  • A specialized radiologist will consult with your provider to determine which imaging technology is best for you
  • Our certified CT technologists carefully position you within the scanner to get the best images
  • Your size and weight are considered when setting up the exam
  • Real-time radiation dose reduction technology is used to minimize your exposure and maintain maximum image quality

If your provider recommends a CT scan, make sure to ask about radiation so you can be informed about medical decisions.
