Rapid CT Scanner

Rapid Computed Tomography (CT) Scan

What is a rapid CT scan?

A rapid computed tomography (CT) scanner completes a full-body scan of internal organs, structures, and tissues in 37 seconds. It’s used in the emergency department instead of a traditional CT, which would take 90 minutes to capture the same images.

Who needs rapid CT scan?

A rapid CT scan is used to look for damage to internal organs in a person with severe physical injuries. The scan can help trauma teams find life-threatening organ damage quickly enough to offer effective treatment.

Rapid CT scan is done by the order of a physician.

Texas law prohibits hospitals from practicing medicine. The physicians on the Methodist Health System medical staff are independent practitioners who are not employees or agents of Methodist Health System, or any of its affiliated hospitals.
