CT scanning—sometimes called CAT scanning—is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. CT scanning combines special x-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body. CT scans are more effective way of visualizing the bony structures in the body e.g. In a case if trauma internal organs can get torn or damaged. CT shows organ tear and organ injury quickly and efficiently. Broken bones and vertebral bodies of the spine are better seen on CT but injury to the spinal cord itself is displayed on MRI far better than CT. CT Angiography is used in Brain, Kidneys, Pelvis, Legs, Lungs, Heart, Neck and Abdomen for visualization of blood vessel routes, directions and detect any blockage within. Howsoever, a risk of radiation exposure is attached to the scan.
