How It Works ?

 A CT scan, also known as a computed tomography scan, is a type of imaging test that uses X-rays to create detailed pictures of the inside of the body. CT scans are often used to diagnose problems with the bones, muscles, and organs. They can also be used to detect tumors or other abnormalities.

The patient lies on a table connected to a large machine during a CT scan. The machine rotates around the patient, taking multiple X-ray images from different angles. These images are then sent to a computer, which creates a three-dimensional image of the inside of the body.

CT scans are generally safe and have very few side effects. However, they do expose the patient to a small amount of radiation. Therefore, CT must scan only be performed when necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

A CT scan is a medical imaging procedure that uses X-rays and computer technology to create detailed images of the inside of the body.

  • CT scans are performed by a radiologist, a doctor specializing in diagnosing and treating diseases using imaging techniques.
  • The patient is asked to lie on a table that slides into the CT scanner, a large machine that looks like a donut.
  • The CT scanner takes a series of X-rays of the patient’s body from different angles.
  • A computer then processes these X-rays to create detailed images of the inside of the body.
  • The radiologist will then interpret these images to make a diagnosis.
  • A CT scan can provide a more detailed and accurate picture of the inside of the body than an X-ray.
  • A CT scan can help to identify problems that may not be visible on an X-ray, such as tumors, blood clots, or bone fractures.
  • A CT scan can help doctors better plan treatment for conditions such as cancer or heart disease.
  • A CT scan can guide procedures such as biopsies or surgeries.
  • A CT scan is generally a safe procedure with minimal risks.

The risks of a CT scan are small, but it is important to discuss them with your doctor before having the procedure done

  • A CT scan is a painless, non-invasive test that uses X-rays and computers to create detailed images of your body.
  • After the CT scan is complete, you can return to your normal activities. No recovery time or special care is needed after the test. Before the CT scan, you may be asked to drink or eat contrast material. This helps to improve the quality of the images.
