CT scan, also known as a CAT scan, is performed for diagnosing medical diseases. It uses the x-ray that produces cross-sectional images of the body. CT scan is a different process than the x-ray machine. It provides a more detailed scan than the x-ray machine. In our hospital, we offer facilities like CT scan and ultrasound and use modern technologies like:
CT scan allows a doctor to look inside the body without any surgery. Using the CT image, the doctor can see the infections, muscle disorders, and bone fractures. Additionally, it gives essential information about wounds on a patient’s hands, feet, and other skeletal structures. Indeed, even little bones are unmistakably noticeable, as is their encompassing tissue.
While going for a CT scan, the patient is not allowed to eat or drink for a few hours before the CT scan, since the patient needs to take some injections before the scan. During the process of the CT scan, our hospital will provide a gown to put on. No jewellery is allowed in a CT scan.
As we know, CT scans use radiation, which is not harmful. Though, there are a few chances of getting cancer, which is very rare. Cancer detection through a CT scan can be increased only if you have had multiple CT scans in your life. If you’re pregnant, then you should not have a CT scan. In such cases, there are some other scans, like MRI, which can minimize risk.
