CT Scan

A computerized tomography (or CT) scan unites a sequence of X-ray images obtained from different angles around the body and employs computer processing to generate cross-sectional images of blood vessels, bones, and soft tissues in the body. CT scan images offer detailed information unlike plain X-rays.

Why it’s done

A top neurologist in Kolkata recommends a CT scan to:

  • Diagnose bone and muscle disorders, like bone tumors and fractures
  • Identify the position of a blood clot, tumor, or infection
  • Guide processes like biopsy, surgery and radiation therapy
  • Identify and observe diseases such as heart disease, cancer, lung nodules, liver masses
  • Monitor the success of definite treatments like cancer treatment
  • Detect inner injuries and bleeding
