What is CT?

CT stands for Computed Tomography (sometimes referred to as a CAT scan). A CT scan produces hundreds of thin slice cross-sectional pictures of the body part being examined, using x-rays and advanced computer processing. It is roughly analogous to looking at a loaf of bread by picking up each slice and looking at it individually. Some examinations require an injection of iodinated contrast material to be given during the scan, while others can be performed without an injection. If it is anticipated that an exam should be performed with an injection of contrast material, the patient may be given pre-medication to reduce the possibility of a reaction to the contrast material. If you have allergies or may be pregnant, be sure to inform your physician and the technologist prior to the exam. After the patient has been positioned on the table and the technologist has programmed the scanner for the exam, the scanning process itself is very quick, requiring only 10-30 seconds.
