|Section Of COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY|
"CT" Scan is sometimes called "CAT" Scan, which stands for Computerized Axial Tomography is a valuable painless, diagnostic imaging test that allows Radiologist (a specially trained physician to interpret x-rays & other imaging tests) to view the organs and different structures of the entire human body in a cross sectional imaging dimension with fine detail. CT creates images of several sections or "planes" of the body with a great advantage of knowing the nature of a particular structure being evaluated by its capability of knowing the attenuation value. This technology has advanced so markedly over the past few years that it has greatly altered treatment courses. Since physicians can now get more information about the real condition of his or her patient or even they can detect many conditions at its earlier stage, greatly optimizing patient outcome.
The UST Hospital Department of Radiology uses a CT Helical scanner of a well known and tested brand to scan images of your body. The available state-of the art scanner provides images of exceptional high resolution. This means your results have an excellent image quality, which gives your physician important information in diagnosing your medical condition & planning a course of treatment.
