A Computerized Tomography, or CT scan, is a special kind of X-ray that produces three-dimensional pictures of a cross-section of a part of the body. CT scans can detect some conditions that conventional X-rays cannot, and the scans can often replace certain diagnostic techniques such as exploratory surgery. CT scans are also helpful in monitoring a patient’s progress during or after treatment.
CT scans can show brain structures, where conventional X-rays cannot. CT scans can also distinguish body bone, tissue, fat, gas, fluid, etc. Scans can determine if a growth is solid or cystic (fluid-filled) and if an organ’s size and shape are normal.
Abdomen, Head, Spine, Chest, Pelvis, and extremities are done. Mayo’s CT scanner is state-of-the-art technology, featuring spiral capabilities.
