What Is A CT Scan? How Does It Work?
A CT Scan, also known as a CAT Scan, is the simplified term for ‘computed tomography.‘ CT Scans use a combination of x-rays and computing power to generate images of your body more detailed than what you’d see in a traditional x-ray. Once powered up, the CT Scan machine sends an x-ray beam around the imaging area. This movement creates several images at various angles which are then processed into a 2D, cross-sectional image. The CT Scan process is similar to an MRI Scan. The patient is typically laid on an imaging table and asked to stay still until the process is complete.
