CT- Computerized Tomography (CAT-SCAN)
CT-Computed Tomography (CAT-SCAN)uses special x-ray equipment to obtain information from different angles around the body. Computers are then used to process the information and create cross-sectional images that appear as "slices" of the body and organs. A CT (computerized tomography) scanner, sometimes called CAT (computerized axial tomography), is a special kind of x-ray machine for examining structures and organs within the body. CT is fast, patient friendly and has the unique ability to image a combination of soft tissue, bone, and blood vessels.
