Computed Tomography (CT) Services

Dr. Samuel Compton Spikes, MD is the physician/operator of a high speed spiral scanner, a GE HiSpeed Advantage Scanner.

As a physician, he has expanded his role into the technical aspects for quality control purposes. Dr. Spikes prescribes every slice made on the CT scanner. GE Smart mA™ is used on each patient allowing for custom dosage based on the study requirements and each individual patient's parameters thus reducing radiation exposures substantially.

Dr. Spikes initiates all scan sequences and reviews all images on the CT console before the exam is completed.

Sometimes, a short series of thin slices are performed on a specific area of interest to further resolve diagnostic findings. There are no CT studies done without Dr. Spikes being present and the administration of contrast is always performed by Dr. Spikes.
