CT Scan

CT Scan

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 transmission data.


As technological and scientific advancements are made-new types of tests/scans are being developed, and new imaging equipment is coming to the market.

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.
