Computed Tomography (CT)

Computed Tomography

Computed tomography, also called a CAT or CT scan, is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to produce cross-sectional images, both horizontally and vertically, of the body. A CAT scan shows detailed images of any part of the body, including the bones, muscles, fat, organs and blood vessels.
