Computed Tomography (CT)
OSF St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group features 64-slice CT, which allows for 3D X-ray images to be taken rapidly from various angles around the body.
64-slice CT is significantly faster than the 16-slice CT and allows for more accurate imaging and additional tests.
The procedure is non-invasive and pain-free.
Length of Procedure
The procedure takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes.
Patients should arrive at the registration desk at the front of the Hospital 20 minutes prior to their appointment time.
Most exams will not require that you wear a gown. If your exam requires blood work, please come in the day before your exam to have it done, if possible.
