CT (Computed Tomography) scans are medical tests that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. CT scans can be used to view bone and soft tissues, including organs, muscles, and tumors.
CT images provide anatomical information from a cross-sectional plane
of the body. Each image is generated by a computer synthesis of x-ray
As technological and scientific advancements are made-new types of
tests/scans are being developed, and new imaging equipment is coming to
One example of this equipment is the SPECT/CT camera. The SPECT/CT
camera joins nuclear medicine and CT (computed tomography). The SPECT
images are super-imposed with the CT images. Combining nuclear medicine
metabolic visualizations and CT anatomical visualizations-accurate
attenuation mapping is possible-allowing pin-point accuracy and more
confident diagnoses of findings.
