Scan that takes cross-sectional images using magnetic-resonance-imaging or x-ray methods
An imaging test in which many x-ray images are taken from different angles of a part of the body. These images are combined by a computer to produce cross-sectional pictures of internal organs.
an imaging technique that uses X-rays and computer analysis to provide a picture of body tissues and structures.
The use of x-rays at different angles and processed through a Computer to produce a cross-sectional image.
An imaging technique that uses x-rays to generate a 3-Dimensional image of the body part in question
Computer generated cross-sectional images of a portion of the body. Also called CT or CAT scan.
A technique that uses X ray or ultrasound to provide images of layers of solid objects, such as pottery or the human body. The images are processed by a computer to create two- and three-dimensional pictures of the object. Often called a CT or CAT scan.
A radiographic scanning procedure to obtain cross-sectional images. The X-ray source rotates about the patient, generating X-rays which pass through the individual and are monitored as they exit, by detectors that are linked to a computer. The computer constructs three-dimensional images for examination and analysis. CT has revolutionized the diagnosis of intracranial, intrathoracic, and intraabdominal tumors, as well as other space-occupying lesions. CAT scan (computer axial tomography), CTAT (computerized transaxial tomography), CRT (computerized reconstruction tomography), and DAT (digital axial tomography) are diagnostic radiographic tools that are now collectively called computed tomography.
