Thanks to CT scanning (computed tomography, often called a “CAT” scan) doctors can view a “slice” of the human body painlessly. Often used to diagnose life-threatening conditions and issues like cancer, blood clots, infections, lung and liver disease, head and spine injuries and internal bleeding, Mat-Su Regional Medical Center includes CT scans among the variety of diagnostic tools we use to give patients of all ages a clear picture of illness and injury.
Our team is happy to take the time to answer your questions and make you feel more comfortable before your CT scan. For your part, you'll be asked to change into a gown in one of our private changing rooms with a locker. Some patients may need to drink a dye solution to ensure the best possible contrast for the images. Your family will be able to wait in our comfortable waiting area near the CT suite.
