What is Multi-sliced Computed Tomography?
Computed Tomography is a sophisticated x-ray imaging technique that allows physicians to look at anatomy deep inside your body. It is sometimes referred to as a CAT scan. During the exam, a CT x-ray tube and detector will rotate rapidly around you taking many images of your body in just seconds. The computer then processes this information into multi-dimensional images representing cross-sectional slices of your anatomy, much like slices in a loaf of bread.
