What is CT scan?
Computerized tomography (CT) scan machine uses series of X-ray images taken from various angles around the body and uses computer to process and create cross-sectional images of the bones, soft tissues, and blood vessels inside the body. It provides more detailed information as compared to simple X-rays and is specifically useful in examining internal injuries and trauma. CT scan machine can be used to visualize all parts of body for diagnosing injuries and diseases. It is also used by healthcare professionals for planning medical, radiation or surgical treatment.

CT Scan Uses
CT Scan can be used for:
- Diagnosing bone and muscle disorders, including fractures and bone tumors.
- Pinpointing location of an infection, blood clot or tumor.
- Guiding procedures like biopsy, surgery, and radiation therapy.
- Monitoring and detecting various diseases, including heart issues, cancer, liver masses and lung nodules.
- Monitoring effectiveness of certain treatments, like cancer treatment.
- Detecting internal bleeding and internal injuries.
CT Scan Brain
CT scan brain is a noninvasive diagnostic imaging method, using special X-ray measurements to produce axial or horizontal images (also called slices) of the brain. It provides precise and detailed information about brain structures and brain tissues, better than the standard head X-ray, and hence more data related to diseases and injuries of the brain.
During CT Scan brain, the X-ray beam moves around the head in circles, presenting images of brain from various angles. The information is sent from CT scan machine to a computer, which then interprets the X-ray data and presents it in 2D (two dimensional) form on a computer screen. The brain CT scan can be performed with or without contrast- a substance that is injected into an intravenous (IV) line, to present clear image of the tissue under study.

CT scan and MRI difference/ CT Scan vs MRI
CT scan and MRI, both are imaging methods, used by doctors for diagnosis. However, both use different technique and serve different purpose. Primary CT scan and MRI difference is the type of information provided by each. Here are some of the CT Scan vs MRI differences:
- CT Scan can take fast series of X-ray images, that are later put together by computer to create image of the scanned area. It is super quick and is a better choice for patients in pain/ emergency/ trauma, etc.
- MRI, on the other hand, uses strong magnetic field to take images of the internal organs and tissues. It takes longer than CT scan and the patient must hold still for 30 minutes to an hour.
- Usually, CT scan is the first choice of imaging by healthcare professionals for bone structures. MRI is used when more information regarding soft tissue structures, joint or ligaments is required.
