Computed Tomography

Computed Tomography (CT) uses X-rays from different angles to produce cross-sectional images of the body.
A CT scanner rotates around the patient, taking multiple X-ray images that are processed by a computer.
CT images show variations in tissue density, providing contrast to distinguish different structures.
CT is used to diagnose bone and joint issues, detect tumors, guide procedures, and monitor diseases.
CT involves exposure to ionizing radiation, but the benefits generally outweigh the risks when medically necessary.
