CT scan

A computed tomography (CT) scan is a diagnostic imaging technique that involves the use of X-rays to produce detailed images of the inside of the body. CT scans can diagnose a wide range of conditions, including cancer, heart disease, stroke, and infections. These scans can also guide biopsies and other medical procedures. Compared to standard X-rays, CT scans are more detailed and can produce cross-sectional images of the body, showing the inside from different angles, and aiding doctors in understanding abnormalities.

CT Scan: Types

Some common types of Computed Tomography(CT) Scan are:

  • NCCT scan: NCCT scan stands for non-contrast computed tomography scan. This type of CT scan does not use contrast media, which is a dye that can be given intravenously (through an IV) or orally to help improve the visibility of specific tissues and organs on the CT scan images. These scans are generally used to diagnose general conditions, such as infections, injuries, and tumors.
  • CECT scan: CECT scan stands for contrast-enhanced computed tomography scan. This type of CT scan involves the use of contrast material to diagnose more specific conditions, such as cancer, blood clots, and blockages in blood vessels.
  • HRCT scan: HRCT stands for high-resolution computed tomography scan is a type of CT scan that uses a special technique to create very detailed images of the lungs. HRCT scans are typically used to diagnose lung diseases, such as pneumonia, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

The type of CT scan you need will depend on the reason for your scan. Your doctor will decide the type of CT scan for you based on your individual needs.
