  • Importance of an Imaging Center Being CT Accredited

    Urgent 9 always works to provide the best urgent care services in Glendale, CA and the surrounding areas. We are proud to say that our imaging center is CT accredited, which is another step in making sure you get the best care possible. With our imaging center, we perform CT scans, X-rays and ultrasounds to take the best care of you.

    Accreditation

    CT accreditation means that the facility is experienced and knowledgeable about how to perform scans as well as how to read them accurately. ACR CT accreditation program requirements include the submission of phantom and clinical images for review, as well as the submission of measurements and scanning protocols.

    Once a facility has completed these requirements, they may then receive their accreditation. ACR accreditation allows patients to trust that a facility can complete any needed imaging procedures.

    In a nutshell, this means you can comfortably and safely come to our imaging center, so we can offer you the best care possible.

    What Happens During a CT Scan?

    As you prepare to receive a CT scan, you will lie still on table that will move you into a round-shaped object (the scanner). While the table moves you, an X-ray tube and detectors will revolve around you to capture the scans of your body. You may hear sounds coming from the machine during the process and that is completely normal; that is the machine taking scans of your body.

    The doctor or a technologist will also be in another room paying close attention to the scans and you will be able to communicate with him/her via an intercom.

    An imaging center is an important part of our office, because a CT scan can tell a lot about a patient. We have an advanced imaging center that contains the latest in low-level radiology equipment.
