CT Scan

Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) scan is a compilation of many x-rays generated by a circular array of x-ray beams and detectors. The patient lies in the middle of this array, and the many x-rays are obtained from 360 degrees and in multiple slices. This allows for the creation of a cross sectional image of the anatomy.

CT Brain

CT scan of the brain shows the brain anatomy  very well. It is particularly useful in the emergency situation eg following head trauma, or when a brain bleed is suspected.

CT Sinuses

CT scan of the sinuses is the gold standard when looking for sinusitis as well as abnormal sinus or nasal anatomy.

 

CT Abdomen

Kidney stones are ideally shown with a non contrasted CT scan. Evaluation of the abdominal organs as well as assessment on intra-abdominal or pelvic tumors is also accomplished with a contrasted scan of the abdomen
