About CT Technology
CT scanning is a painless, non-invasive testing method widely used by doctors because it provides the most revealing images of internal organs, bones, soft tissues and blood vessels. Computed tomography (CT) combines special x-ray technology and sophisticated computer technology to create high-speed, cross-section images of the inner workings of the human body. The images are electronically reconstructed to create two and three-dimensional illustrations that can reveal a wide array of medical conditions.
