CT

What is CT?
 
A "CT" or "CAT" scan is the term used to describe a radiologic test known as "computerized tomography" (or computed axial tomography). The CT scanner uses advanced x-ray technology to take pictures of cross-sections of your body, called "slices." CT can see inside the brain and other parts of the body.
