What is computed tomography?
As defined by the United States Food and Drug Administration, “Computed tomography (CT) imaging, also known as “CAT scanning” (Computerize Axial Tomography), provides a different form of imaging known as cross-sectional imaging. The origin of the word “tomography” is from the Greek word “tomos” meaning “slice” or “section” and “graphe” meaning “drawing.” A CT imaging system produces cross-sectional images or “slices” of anatomy, like the slices in a loaf of bread. The cross-sectional images are used for a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.”
