Computed tomography is a modern imaging technology that uses X-ray radiation to create detailed cross-sectional images of the internal structure of the human body.
Indications for a visit
In various cases, the doctor may direct the patient to a computed tomography (CT) scan to get a more detailed understanding of the internal structure of the body.
Below are some common symptoms that may indicate the need for a computed tomography (CT) scan:
Headache; if the patient experiences severe and/or frequent headaches, especially when accompanied by other symptoms,
Head or neck injuries; after serious head or neck injuries, a CT scan may be ordered to search for bleeding or other changes in tissues.
Abdominal pain; if you have unexplained abdominal pain, especially when suspecting any problems with the abdominal organs, your doctor may direct you to get a computed tomography (CT) scan.
Suspecting tumors or neoplasms; if any neoplasms are found in the patient or there is a suspicion of tumors growing in organs or tissues,
Complications after surgical interventions,
Problems associated with joints and bones,
Problems associated with lungs; a chest CT scan may be ordered when suspecting a presence of lung disease.
It is important to note that the decision to carry out a computed tomography (CT) scan is made by the physician based on the medical history, clinical symptoms, and other available data.
With the help of computed tomography, the following are carried out:
computed tomography (CT) of the brain (in case of acute cerebral blood circulation disorders),
diagnosis of polytraumas
CT with bolus contrast
CT-angiography with contrast
diagnosis of complex surgical diseases,
diagnosis of vascular pathologies,
diagnosis of bone pathologies,
CT of the heart,
CT during some medical interventions (biopsy, drainage)
CT of the lungs
CT of the kidneys
Head and neck CT
CT of the spinal cord
