Computed tomography (CT) uses sophisticated x-ray technology to help detect a variety of diseases and conditions. CT scanning is fast, painless, noninvasive and accurate. In emergency cases, it can reveal internal injuries and bleeding quickly enough to help save lives.
CT scanning can identify infections, fractures, cardiovascular disorders, trauma and bleeding more efficiently and with incredible accuracy. This is often the best method for detecting many different cancers, since the images allow the radiologist to confirm or exclude the presence of a tumor and determine its size and location.
