What is a CT Scan?
A CT scan is a pain free, non-invasive procedure that takes a combined series of X-ray images of your body from many different angles while you lie inside a ring-shaped device. This can detect any small abnormalities in your bones, lungs, soft tissues and blood vessels. The computer processes cross sectional, highly detailed images of the body taken from various angles.
CT scans are predominately used to examine people who may have internal injuries and the scan can be used to visualize all parts of the body.
