More commonly known as a CT scan or CAT scan, Computed Tomography combines x-rays and computers for a rapid, painless diagnostic examination. A CT scan allows a radiologist to pinpoint the location, nature and extent of trauma, disease or abnormality in a patient. In many cases, the image from a CT scan is improved by the intravenous administration of radiographic contrast material.
