What is a CT Scan?
CT Scan is also called as Computerized Tomography (CT). CT Scan helps to examine the internal organs of our body with the help of X-ray beams.
The brain, neck, spine, chest, abdomen, pelvis and sinus can be visualized with the help of CT Scan. CT Scan can also be used in diagnosis such as cancer, cardiovascular , infectious disease, appendicitis, musculoskeletal disorders, trauma, etc. The CT scan uses X-ray beams to produce a detailed picture of our internal organs.
How is a CT Scan done?
The CT Scan machine looks like a long tube attached with a table. You will be asked to wear a gown given by the lab assistant. Then you should lie on the table which slides into the CT Scan machine.
The CT machine will then scan the body part which is to be examined. The machine produces X-ray beams to get a detailed image of your body part. It is important to remain still during the scan. You may be strapped to the table to get a quality image.
In some cases a contrast dye will be injected in your vein to get a clear picture of your blood vessels. The dye highlights the bloodstreams to appear bright on the images. It should be used only if the doctor suggest it.
It may take 15 to 30 minutes to complete a CT Scan based on the information required.
What are the risk in CT Scan?
The CT Scan uses X-ray beams to produce the image of your internal organs. Because of this you will be exposed to the radiation which may affect you.
So it is not advisable to get a CT Scan during pregnancy. If contrast dye is used in CT Scan, then there are chances of getting sick or allergic.
