What is 3D CT Scan?
3D Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan is a diagnostic procedure where rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of internal organs of the whole body or a specific area as required. These images can then be used to create a three dimensional image of the various body parts.

Preparation for 3D CT Scan
- Pregnant women should inform their doctor (and x-ray technician) as the radiations may affect the fetus. If needed, precautions can be taken to lower the radiation exposure to the fetus.
- Depending on the area to be imaged, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown at the time of the X-ray.
