A “CT Scan” or “Cat Scan” stands for computed topography. These computer-generated images are similar to an X-ray, but with several layers. Thus, creating an internal, cross-sectional view of the body. This procedure is non-invasive, painless, and usually only takes a couple of minutes. You can expect to lie on a narrow table, similar to a gurney. The narrow table will pass through what looks like a giant, rotating donut. This is how the multi-layer images are taken. CT scans are helpful in diagnosing unexplained pain and/or disease of internal organs. A qualified technician will prepare you for the procedure and operate the CT machine. However, a medical doctor (Radiologist) will decipher the images. This can be done in-house or remotely depending on your facility and your health condition. Occasionally, intravenous dye is used during CT scans. This is dependent upon your condition and your doctor.
