What is CT Scanning of the Body? Computed tomography, more commonly known as a CT or CAT scan, is a diagnostic medical test that, like traditional x- rays, produces multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body. The cross- sectional images generated during a CT scan can be reformatted in multiple planes, and. Imaging before CT. ○ entire body areas were inaccessible to radiography - brain , mediastinum, retroperitoneum. ○ diagnostic procedures showing better detail in these areas were potentially harmful and or poorly tolerated by the patient - pneumoencephalography, diagnostic pneumomediastinum, diagnostic laparotomy. Book summary: Since its introduction in , X-ray computed tomography (CT) has evolved into an essential diagnostic imaging tool for a continually increasing. Author content. 43 B.

The basic three components of a CT scanner are still the same as in planar X-ray imaging: An X-ray tube, an object (patient) and a detection system. In the earliest scanners the output of the X-ray tube was collimated to a narrow, pencil-like beam and detected by a single detector. X-ray tube and detec- tor were translated in. 31 Mar Document Version.

12 Jun Basic Principles of CT. • CT imaging system moves around the body part at a fixed location. • Attenuation information obtained in multiple planes. • Reconstruct of this attenuation information into a simple grid. 6/12/ DEPARTMENT OF RADIOLOGY. 7. This became possible when Geoffrey N. Hounsfield presented the first CT scanner in Figure 1 – Typical AP (anterior-posterior or front-to-back) chest X-ray photograph. Figure 2 – Transversal CT slice of the chest. This new technique of computed tomography (CT) reconstructs a cross-sectional image of the body from a. What will happen? • The patient may have to put on a hospital gown. • They must remove all jewellery and anything that is metal. • The patient may be asked to lie on their front, side or back. • The radiographer will be able to talk to the patient through an intercom. • The bed will move backwards and forwards through the.
