CT Scans and Your Safety

Mother and Child

At SSM Imaging, our goal is to always provide the highest quality diagnostic images with the least amount of radiation possible for each patient.

Exposure to radiation during your CT exam can be of concern. 

  • Specialized radiologists work with your doctor to determine if a CT is the best exam for you.  All CT orders are reviewed by our radiologists to determine the appropriateness of the exam.
  • Our certified CT technologists carefully position you within the scanner for optimal 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.
  • We voluntarily submit the radiation dose of every single CT exam we perform to the American College of Radiology for comparison to other providers nationwide, a clear indicator of our commitment to better patient care. 

To learn more about our efforts to reduce radiation or to schedule a CT exam, call our center.
