Computed Tomography (CT) is a diagnostic procedure that combines x-ray with advanced computer processing technology to create accurate detailed images of internal structures and organs.
CT, formerly known as a CAT scan, is an advanced medical imaging procedure that uses a revolving x-ray producing tube, special electronic sensors, and powerful computers, to make slice-like, cross-sectional images.
What to expect
The procedure allows radiologists to more easily diagnose cancers, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, trauma and musculoskeletal disorders.
Typical procedures include:
- Head CT
- Chest CT
- Abdomen and pelvis CT
- Bone CT
