Computed Tomography, better known as CT Scan, is a type of x-ray imaging performed in conjunction with computer analysis to render cross sectional views of the body, similar to the slices in a loaf of bread. CT imaging is used to evaluate for traumatic injury to the body, broken bones, blood clots, strokes, infections and many other diseases. It is also used to guide doctors in performing biopsies and other minimally invasive procedures. More information about Computed Tomography.
