Ct Scan

CT (Computed tomography) scan is a diagnostic technique which uses computers and X-rays to produce cross-sectional images of the body parts like the head, shoulders, spine, heart, brain, abdomen, knee, and chest. A CT scan is more detailed than a standard X-ray as it also shows the soft tissues, blood vessels, bones. It is used for diagnosing diseases like infections, fractures, muscle disorders, tumors, and to guide surgeries and biopsies.
