CT (computed tomography), sometimes called CAT scan, uses special x-ray equipment to obtain image data from different angles around the body and then uses computer processing of the information to show a cross-section of body tissues and organs. CT imaging is particularly useful because it can show several types of tissue—lung, bone, soft tissue and blood vessels—with great clarity. Using specialized equipment and expertise to create and interpret CT scans of the body, radiologists can more easily diagnose problems such as cancers, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, trauma and musculoskeletal disorders.

CT Scan procedure
The CT scan machine is a state-of-the-art image diagnostic tool that uses multiple X-rays embedded in a doughnut-shaped tube that rotates 360 degrees around the target area.
CT scan is a quick diagnostic procedure and takes about 30 minutes to complete. During the test, you’ll be required to lie flat on your back on a motorised, retractable table.
You’ll also need to stay still during the test as the machine takes X-rays images of the target area. If you are uncomfortable in enclosed spaces, you can talk to the radiologist using the embedded intercom.
As the CT scan relies on X-ray imaging, the radiologist might ask you to hold your breath for a few seconds to get clearer images.
The captured images are then digitally reconstructed to provide a comprehensive 2D/3D view. This enables the doctor to identify and diagnose a variety of medical issues for an effective treatment regimen.
