What is a CT Scan?

A CT scan —  known as CT or computerized tomography — is an X-ray technique that produces images of your body that visualize internal structures in cross section rather than the overlapping images typically produced by conventional X-ray exams.  A CT Scan is usually able to show more detailed pictures of organs, bones, and other tissues than a conventional X-ray.

To learn more about CT Scans, how they're performed, and how to prepare for one, we recommend reading "About CT Scans" from the Atlanta Medical Center and watching "Video: CT Scan" from the Mayo Clinic.
