CT (Computed Tomography)

Book an Appointment


Ever wondered what’s inside that nagging cough or that persistent pain? A CT scan, or computed tomography scan, might be your key to unlocking the mysteries. This powerful imaging technique offers a detailed 3D view of your bones, organs, and tissues, helping doctors diagnose a wide range of medical conditions.

What is a CT Scan?

Imagine a camera that takes X-rays from multiple angles and then stitches them together into a detailed 3D image, like a high-tech slice-and-dice puzzle. That’s basically what a CT scan does. It uses a rotating X-ray beam to capture numerous images of your body from different angles. These images are then processed by a computer to create a precise 3D reconstruction, allowing doctors to see inside your body with remarkable detail.

What can a CT Scan Show?

CT scans are versatile detectives, revealing secrets hidden within:

  • Bone fractures and tumors: From hairline cracks to hidden growths, CT scans can pinpoint bone abnormalities and assess their severity.
  • Internal injuries: From bleeding within the abdomen to damage from trauma, CT scans can provide crucial information for emergency care.
  • Cancer detection and staging: CT scans can detect tumors in various organs and tissues, helping doctors stage cancer and plan treatment.
  • Blood vessel problems: CT angiography can visualize blood vessels, helping diagnose conditions like aneurysms and blockages.
  • Infections: CT scans can identify abscesses and other signs of infections, guiding treatment decisions.


Benefits of CT Scans:

  • Detailed images: CT scans offer far greater detail than standard X-rays, providing a clearer picture of internal structures.
  • Faster diagnosis: CT scans can quickly pinpoint the cause of symptoms, leading to faster diagnosis and treatment.
  • Non-invasive: Unlike surgery, CT scans are non-invasive, meaning no needles or incisions are needed.
  • Versatility: CT scans can be used to examine virtually any part of the body.
