What does ‘CT’ mean?
CT stands for computerised tomography. During a CT scan, X-rays and computers are used to produce detailed images of events inside the body. Other names for CT scans include CAT scans. These scans are normally carried out by radiographers. The machines themselves can produce images of many organs and structures such as bones and blood vessels.
What is the purpose of CT scanning?
CT scans are normally used to diagnose conditions ranging from blood flow issues and broken bones to strokes and cancer. Once a CT scan has taken place, medical professionals can make informed decisions on further treatments and tests. A CT scan can tell us how big a tumour is before radiotherapy takes place and can be used to examine the size of a tumour before, during and after cancer treatment. These scans normally take place once it is clear a problem exists – they are not usually used when no symptoms are evident.
Patients shouldn’t feel claustrophobic during CT scans as the machines don’t surround their entire bodies. Scans normally take between ten and 20 minutes.
