Whole Body CT

A whole body CT scan uses x-rays to create 2D and 3D images of the chest, abdomen and pelvis.

This study may be performed when your doctor is concerned for a condition potentially involving multiple locations and/or organs in the body. These systems can include the respiratory, circulatory, reproductive, gastrointestinal, and endocrine systems.


A CT of the chest, abdomen and pelvis generally only takes a couple minutes to perform. Your entire visit typically takes less than 30 minutes.
