CT Technology

Piedmont Athens Regional operates four state-of-the-art CT (computed tomography) scan systems.

Outpatient CT scans are available in the main Radiology Department at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center as well as Athens Medical Specialty Park.

CT scans are non-invasive procedures that collect images of the body from multiple angles. Powerful computers, producing tremendously clear cross-sectional and three-dimensional pictures of the body, process these images. CT scans have become the preferred method to diagnose many different diseases and traumatic injuries due to the speed, ease and accuracy of the technology.
