A "CT Scan" is the term used to describe a radiologic test known as "computerized tomography". The CT scanner is a doughnut shaped machine that uses advanced x-ray technology to take pictures of your body. A computer then reconstructs the data into cross-sectional pictures of your body, called slices or sections.
CT can be used to see inside the brain and other parts of the body that can not be seen with regular x-ray examinations. Recent advancements in CT technology now make it possible to diagnose certain diseases earlier and more accurately than with other imaging tools.
