Computer Tomography - CT Scan

Computer Tomography - CT Scan

The Computer Tomography (CT Scan) uses both rotating X-ray and computer technology to show very detailed images that are created by cross-sectional images of the body.

The images are more detailed than normal x-rays and can show soft tissues, bones, and blood vessels.

The CT is like a tunnel, the machine rotates around the table and takes x-rays from different angles, once these are loaded in the computer it can show slices, cross sections and can even allow us to produce 3D images that can be made into models.

The CT scan is well suited to evaluating injuries and diagnoses of diseases, it allows us to see in very clear and accurate detail.
