A computerized tomography scan (CT or CAT scan) creates cross-sectional images of the body using computers and rotating X-ray devices. These images provide more details than standard X-ray images. Soft tissues, blood vessels, and bones in different parts of the body can all be visible. A CT scan can be used to see the internal structural condition of the head, shoulders, heart, abdomen, knees, and chest.
During a CT scan, you have to lie in a doughnut-shaped tunnel-like machine as the inside rotates, and takes a series of X-rays from various angles. These images are then moved to a computer, where they are combined to generate images of slices or cross-sections of the body. They can also be combined to create a 3D representation of a specific body part. These images are sent to a radiologist for examination. It is vital to lie still & you shouldn't wear any metal objects. The entire procedure may take near about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
A CT scan can be used for various purposes, but it's especially applicable for diagnosing diseases and assessing injuries. The imaging technique will help a doctor to:
Diagnose infections, muscle disorders, and bone fractures
Examine the blood vessels and other internal organs
Find the precise position of tumors (including cancer)
Verify the extent of any internal trauma or bleeding
Monitor the effectiveness of treatments for particular medical conditions like heart disease and cancer
