A CT scan (computed tomography scan) is an imaging scan. It uses X-rays and a computer to make detailed pictures of different areas inside the body. A CT scan can give more information than a regular X-ray exam. A CT scan provides data about internal organs, soft tissue structures, blood vessels, and bones.
In this procedure, the pictures will be taken in a large machine that has an opening (CT scanner).
