CT (Computed Tomography) scanners such as the one at Harlan County Health System allow doctors to see tissue as well as bone in ways that were never before possible. Using the CT scanner, HCHS clinicians are able to diagnose kidney, lung, spine, and blood diseases, and locate cancers, tumors and cysts as well as blood clots, hemorrhages and infections. The three-dimensional images are also excellent for orthopedic and vascular studies.
