CT stands for Computerized Tomography, which refers to the way this exam is performed. CT scan is an X-ray procedure which is enhanced by a computer. This results in a three-dimensional view (referred to as a “slice”) of a particular part of the body.

During a routine X-ray, dense tissues can block other areas. Aided by the computer, a CT scan is able to put together the different “slices” and create a three-dimensional view, clearly showing both bone and soft tissue.
