Computerised tomography (CT or CAT scan) is a type of x-ray that produces cross-section pictures of the body. To have the scan, you lie on a couch while it passes through a large, hollow ring. See computerised tomography section.
A scanning procedure using X-rays and a computer to detect abnormalities of the body's organs. This technique provides cross-sectional images of body organs, which is much clearer than those provided by conventional X-rays.
A technique of using ultrasound, gamma rays or X-rays to produce a focused image of the structures across a certain depth within the body, while blurring details at other depths. more...
A CT scan, sometimes also called a CAT scan, takes pictures of the body and uses a computer to put them together. CT stands for computerised tomography and is a painless procedure. A series of X-rays are taken of the body at slightly different angles, to produce very detailed images of the inside of the body.
A CT (Computerised Tomography) scan uses x-rays to produce images of the body. The images are like cross-sections of the area being scanned (i.e. the head, body or chest).
Computer-assisted x-ray diagnostic procedure for the creation of sectional images (tomograms). The computer calculates the sectional images from the absorption of fine ex-ray radiation sent through the layer to be examined.
