CT scans are an x-ray based diagnostic test. CT scans allow the referring doctor and radiologist to review the body as you might look at a loaf of bread, in thin slices. The patient's scan can be reviewed in different orientations, looking at slices from the front or side of the body making it extremely accurate.
Any area of the human body can be assessed by a CT scan including brain, heart, neck, spine, chest, abdomen, pelvis and sinuses. CT scans can easily visualise bones, arteries and veins, fully access the bowels and organs of the body. This is a very versatile scanning technique with very few risks.
