3D CT Left Heel Joint
What is 3D CT Left Heel Joint?
CT stands for Computed Tomography. It is a computerised X-ray system used to produce images of various parts of the body. In a conventional x-ray, structures are superimposed on top of one another, making it difficult to get a clear picture. CT scan takes a picture of the body in a single cross-section, giving an unobstructed view of every organ, bone and soft-tissue. CT uses pencil-point x-ray beams from a rotating doughnut surrounding the patient's body. Detectors pick up the signals which vary in strength after they pass through human tissue. The detectors then send this information to a computer, which creates a picture of a single slice of the human body
