image-product COMPUTER TOMOGRAPHY

A computerized tomography (CT) scan combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues inside human body.

For the CT scan the patient is put on a specialized, movable table and is moved into the gantry. The CT scanner gantry is a moveable frame that contains the X-ray tube with a moving lamp, emitting X-ray radiation.
Next, the images are added together by computer and shown on the monitor as an image of anatomical structures.
In our clinic, scans are performed with a 16-row GE BrightSpeed computerized tomography.
