Computed tomography (CT) or Computerized axial tomography (CAT scan) is a diagnostic imaging test used to create detailed images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels. The cross-sectional images generated during a CT scan can be reformatted in multiple planes, and can even generate three-dimensional images which can be viewed on a computer monitor, printed on film or transferred to electronic media. CT scanning is often the best method for detecting many different cancers since the images allow your doctor to confirm the presence of a tumor and determine its size and location. CT scan of the brain mostly shows which areas of the brain are supplied or perfused adequately with blood. It can be used in a variety of conditions like to evaluate stroke, haemorrahges, and to diagnose CNS tumors. It is a fast, painless, noninvasive and highly accurate test.
