CT Scan is short-form for a Computerized Axial Tomography Scan.
A CT Scan typically combines multiple rotating X-Rays along with hi-end computerized processing to produce a more detailed ‘picture’ of the inner structures of a body – including bones, tissues and organs.
A CT Scan offers significantly greater detail and clarity as compared to a regular X-Ray (it’s a bit like looking inside a slice of bread, instead of an outer view of the entire loaf).
A CT Scan is typically done on our spine, heart, head, chest, abdomen, abdomen and knee. During a CT Scan, the body is made to pass through a tunnel-like machine that rotates through a 360-degree arc as it takes X-Ray images in rapid succession.
These images are subsequently fed into a computer to produce an ‘all-around’ 2D snapshot of any part of the body.
A minimally invasive and painless procedure, a CT Scan can be done on any part of the body in little time.
While essentially 2D in nature (i.e. producing two-dimensional image slices), a CT Scan can also be employed to create 3D images.
A CT Scan cost depends on the body parts which you want to scan.
