CAT scans

The Technology

CAT scans not ordered through our Emergency Sevices must be scheduled in advance. Please call 215-710-2208 to arrange.  

CT or CAT (computerized axial tomography) scans use a computer to combine a series of x-rays to produce a three-dimensional image of the internal organs and structures within the body. CAT scans have been used in diagnostic medicine since about 1972. At St. Mary Medical Center, CT technology functions as a vital diagnostic tool in the development of such service lines as trauma and emergency care, cardiology, oncology (cancer), internal and orthopedic medicine. As Bucks County’s only state-certified Trauma Center, St. Mary Medical Center is equipped to provide CT capability 24-hours a day, 365 days of the year.

CT scans are an important diagnostic imaging tool
