Dual Source CT for Gout

Dual source CT allows our imaging specialists to make a non-invasive, definitive diagnosis of gout. By scanning at two different energies, we can detect the chemical composition of tissues based on their differential absorption of energy.  The gout crystals are color coded in green.

For Physicians: When ordering, please request the AHSP Dual-source CT.

To schedule an appointment, please call 310-423-8000.
