CT Scan

 

CT stands for Computed Tomography.

A diagnostic technique in which the combined use of a computer & x-rays passed through the body at different angles produces clear cross-sectional images of the tissue being examined.

It provides clearer & more detailes information than x-rays used by themselves.

You lie on a table, & the CT scan shoots x-rays around the periphery of an organ or part of the body.
