CT imaging combines special X-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple cross sectional images or pictures of the inside of the body. This imaging technique is very sensitive and provides great clarity when studying internal organs, bone, soft tissue, and blood vessels, and reveals more details than regular X-ray exams. With this technology radiologists can more easily diagnose problems such as cancers, vascular disorders, infectious disease, trauma, and musculoskeletal disorders. 64-slice and multi-slice CT are effective and patient-friendly exams with shorter scan times.
Southtowns Radiology specializes in the following CT studies:
CT Exams we offer include:
- Low Dose Lung Screening
- Cardiac Calcium Scoring
- Radiation Planning
- Renal Stone Protocol
- Sinuses (Image Guided)
- Soft tissue neck

Questions about CT Scans
Southtowns Radiology is proud to offer Phillips iDose technology on its 64-slice scanner for a reduction in radiation levels of up to 50%.
Radiation levels in CT scanning have been an increasing concern for physicians and patients in recent years. Exposure to radiation is an important concern for younger patients, women of childbearing age and patients whose diagnosis requires additional follow up scans.
This new iDose technology adds greater peace of mind for patients while actually improving image quality through O-MAR artifact prevention and increased spatial resolution. O-MAR technology reduces the artifact seen on images that results from orthopedic or metal implants in the body.
Preparations may vary depending on the exam ordered. This will be reviewed at the time of scheduling.
Whether you need a multi-slice CT, a low does CT, a lung screening, or other diagnostic imaging, we can help. Contact our medical professionals at one of our office locations below.
Southtowns Radiology is pleased to offer Phillips CT technology with iDose and O-MAR to improve image quality while reducing radiation dosage for scans. Artifacts from large metal objects such as orthopedic implants can be problematic in imaging. These artifacts typically result in loss of anatomical information, impeding visualization of tissue and critical structures. That is why Southtowns Radiology is offering the Phillips iDose4 Premium Package. iDose4, Phillips’ 4th-generation iterative reconstruction technique improves image quality through artifact prevention and increased spatial resolution. O-MAR reduces artifacts caused by large orthopedic implants. All of this is achieved while still reducing the radiation dosage up to 50%.
