CT (Computed Tomography) Scan
CT (Computed Tomography), sometimes called a CAT scan, uses special x-ray equipment to obtain image data from different angles around the body and then uses computer processing of the information to show a cross-section of body tissues and organs.
CT imaging is particularly useful because it can show several types od tissue (lung, bone, soft tissue and blood vessels) with great clarity. Using specialised equipment and expertise to create and interpret CT scans of the body, radiologists can more easily diagnose problems such as cancers, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, trauma and musculoskeletal problems.
