CT Scanning

CT Scan

A CT or CAT scan is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to produce both horizontal and vertical cross-section images (often called slices) of the body. A CT scan shows detailed images of any part of the body, including the bones, muscles, fat, organs and blood vessels. CT scans are more detailed than standard X-rays..
