A non-invasive method, CT scanning combines special x-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple images or pictures inside of the body.
A computerized tomography scan (CT or CAT scan) uses computers and rotating X-ray machines to create cross-sectional images of the body. These images provide more detailed information than normal X-ray images. They can show the soft tissues, blood vessels, and bones in various parts of the body. A CT scan may be used to visualize the:

CT Scan Procedure
A CT Scan is usually done in a hospital or radiology clinic, and is performed by a qualified radiology technologist. The patient may be advised by the guiding medical professional or doctor to abstain from eating or drinking for a few hours before the procedure begins. When it is time for the Test, the patient will be required to lie on a table – usually on the back, though sometimes it may be sideways or face-down as well. The table then starts to make its way slowly inside a large and circular (donut-shaped) CT Machine that contains circling X-Ray beams within. As the body passes through the circle, the X-Ray beams capture a ring-like, cross-sectional image of the ‘slice’ of the body directly in its ‘gaze’ or range. After every ‘X-Ray shot’, the table (on which the patient is lying) will move a bit, enabling the machine to take the next ‘shot’. These shots are subsequently scanned and processed digitally to generate a series of 2D ‘slices’ of the body, each slice providing a detailed image of the bones, tissues, blood vessels and organs. The patient has to remain as still as possible during the scanning process to ensure ‘best results’. When the Scan is the operation, nobody is allowed to be present in the room – with the exception of the patient, of course. During the process, the patient can communicate with the radiologist professional who is conducting the Scan via intercom – and vice versa. A CT Scan can take anywhere between a few minutes to a half-hour at the max, and one can usually return home almost immediately once the procedure has been completed.
