COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY (CT)
A computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan allows doctors to see inside your body. It uses a combination of x-rays and a computer to generate high-resolution images of your organs, bones, and other tissues. A CT scan shows more detail than a regular x-ray. CT scans are quick and can be done to any part of the body.
