CT scan, or computed tomography scan is a medical imaging procedure that uses computer-processed combinations of many X-ray measurements taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional (tomographic ) images (virtual “slices”) of specific areas of a scanned object, allowing the user to see inside the object without cutting.
CT scans can detect bone and joint problems, like complex bone fractures and tumors. If you have a condition like cancer, heart disease, emphysema, or liver masses, CT scans can spot it or help doctors see any changes. They show internal injuries and bleeding, such as those caused by a car accident.
CT (computerized tomography)scan is a combination of a series of X-ray images taken at different angles; the CT uses a computer to create images from these X-rays. An MRI(magnetic resonance imaging) is ascan that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce a detailed image of the body’s soft tissues and bones.
