Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
A computed tomography (CT) scan provides a more detailed image of your bones, blood vessels and soft tissue than an X-ray alone. A CT scan enables the specialists at Orlin & Cohen to study the inner workings of your body to help speed diagnosis, assist with procedures or surgery, or confirm the success of a recent procedure or surgery.
A CT scanner is tube shaped with a motorized table inside that you lie on while detectors and the X-ray tube rotate around you and take several images of your body. CT scans are painless, and with the newer machines, the scans only take 20 minutes.
For your convenience—and to ensure optimum communication between professionals and the best coordination of your care—Orlin & Cohen has a state-of-the-art Hitachi Supria CT scanner at 1101 Stewart Avenue, Suite 100, in Garden City. Our CT machine accommodates patients up to 375 lbs. and features a long scannable range for taller patients. All images are immediately forwarded and available to your physician in digital form and can subsequently be accessed by your doctor from any secure location.
If your Orlin & Cohen specialist has determined that a CT scan is necessary, our knowledgeable office staff can take care of the rest. From scheduling your appointment to obtaining authorization from your insurance company, Orlin & Cohen can handle it all.
