A computer tomography scan, or CT Scan, is a scan that uses two-dimensional imaging to create a three-dimensional picture. Doctors can use CT Scans to see an accurate representation of the interior of a patient without having to perform surgery. This can greatly aid the diagnostic process while requiring less inconvenience for the patient.
At Zia Neurology, our facility is equipped with an on-site imaging center for CT studies, as well as an in-house Autonomic Laboratory and EMG/NCS Laboratory. Having an onsite CT scan helps aid in identifying ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke patients. This allows Dr. Zia to provide the highest level of stroke care to our patients, which ultimately leads to better outcomes.
