A Computed Tomography machine (CT scanner) is a 3-D computerized x-ray imaging device that rotates around the patient to take successive cross-sectional photos or “image slices.” These image slices (tomographic images) can then be stacked by the computer into a precise 3-D rendering of the physical and the physiological processes of your body. The CT scanner helps doctors to diagnose and treat a variety of ailments by providing more accurate details than what is possible with conventional x-ray machines.
The benefits of CT scans far outweigh any associated risks. CT scans have helped revolutionize diagnosis and treatment and have dramatically decreased the need for exploratory surgeries and other potentially risky invasive procedures.
