CT (Computed Tomography) or CAT (Computed Axial Tomography) is a procedure that produces highly detailed X-Ray images of your body which shows health issues. These scanned images show Blood vessels, soft tissues and bones of various parts.
CT has become an important tool in medical imaging. It is used for preventive medicine or screening of disease.
A CT scan can be done in a hospital or a radiology clinic. It is fast, painless, noninvasive and accurate. The CT scan machine is a doughnut shaped machine in which the patient will have to lie in. The scan can take a few minutes to half an hour. The patient will be asked to not eat or drink anything for a several hours before the procedure. Metal objects must be removed before the procedure as it can interfere with the scan. The patient might even be asked to stay still and hold their breath during the scan to avoid blurring the image.
Procedure: A narrow X-ray beam that circles around one part of your body is used to perform CT scan. This X-ray beam provides a series of images from different angles. During the scan, a patient lies on a bed that slowly moves through the CT scan machine. The X-ray tube rotates around the patient giving out a narrow X-ray beam through the body. As the X-rays leave the patient it is picked up by the detectors and transmitted to a computer. The Computer uses this information to create a cross sectional picture. This two dimensional (2D) scan shows a slice of your body.
A special dye called Contrast material is used to help highlight the areas of your body to be scanned. The contrast material blocks X-rays and appears white on images, which can help identifying obstructions in the blood vessels. Contrast agents contain substances which stop X-rays making it more visible on the X-ray image.Contrast dye for CT scan is given in three forms – injection, enema or orally. Contrast agents for CT scan are made of iron or barium sulfate.
