Computerized tomography scans (CT)
A computerized tomography imaging, sometimes called a CAT scan or a CT scan, can help your physician diagnose a muscle or bone disorder; locate a tumor, infection or blood clot; or detect internal injuries and bleeding. In some cases, your doctor may even use a CT scan to guide procedures such as surgery, biopsy or radiation therapy. A CT scan uses special X-ray equipment to take pictures of the inside of your body from different angles. A computer then combines these pictures to form detailed, three-dimensional (3-D) views of the area of your body being examined.
The CT scanner is the latest imaging technology used to diagnose neurology, oncology and many other specialties. The CT scan provides views of the entire body in seconds and profile incredibly sharp 3-D images of any organ.
