A way of looking inside your body using a special camera. The images (or pictures) produced are cross – sectional, like the slices in a loaf of bread. During a CT exam the scanner takes multiple cross-sectional pictures of you. These pictures are created with the help of a computer and are capable of depicting various internal body parts in much greater detail than standard X-Ray films. This greatly enhances the radiologist’s ability to read the images and diagnose a medical condition.
