Computed Tomography (CT) uses special x-ray techniques to produce multiple images (slices) of the body. Slices are produced by a rotating x-ray tube that rotates 360 degrees around the patient’s body. Slices are usually taken approximately 2.5 - 5 mm apart and are used to create 2 dimensional images of soft tissues and other structures not captured in conventional x-rays. 3-D images can be produced in some cases depending on the equipment and computer software available. CT scans are particularly useful in the diagnosis of trauma, musculoskeletal disorders, cardiovascular disease, infectious diseases, and cancer. For more detailed information. Learn more.
