What is CT scan ?
Ct scan or Computed Tomography is a diagnostic procedure that provides real-time imaging. It uses a combination of X-ray and computer technology to provide high-resolution images. It generates a ‘slice’ or cut of a three-dimensional image in a two-dimensional pattern. A radiographic beam is emitted from
a tube that passes through the body tissues and hits the detectors. The detectors convert the photon signals from the beam into analyzable images on the connected computer screen. A CT scan is the most helpful to detect internal organ abnormalities, guide biopsies, assess malignancies, trauma injuries and more. With CT scan, differences in the densities as low as 1% can also be recognized.
