Computer tomography (CT or SCT, MSCT) is one of the key methods for diagnosing internal organs and systems, using multilayer scanning due to x-rays. If to speak easier, the computer tomograph is a "large and more powerful X-ray" Traditional x-ray method (X-ray) can provide a picture in only one projection, when a CT scan allows you to view the object with a precision of up to a millimeter from all visible sides.
Principle of operation
In the CT scan, the X-ray tube emits a thin, fan-shaped beam of X-rays that scans the body, moving around it around the circumference. Opposite to the X-ray tube, a circular system of detectors is installed, fixing the intensity of radiation after passing through the tissues of the body. What is the procedure for computed tomography?
The method of computer tomography can be divided into two types:
1. CT without contrast - a native study (without the use of contrast medium)
2. CT with contrast - bolus study (using contrast medium)
Computer tomography without contrast is as follows:
1. You will be taken to a treatment room where you will be asked to remove all metal objects located in the examination area (earrings, rings, bracelets, brassiere with metal elements, etc.)
2. You will be asked to lie down on the soft mobile tomograph table. Throughout the scan, the table will move in a horizontal plane, and the ring with the detectors will rotate around you, while maintaining complete immobility and following the doctor's instructions (inhale, exhale, hold breath).
3. The research process assumes that only you will be in the room with a tomograph (procedural) at the time of the examination. Experiencing this is not worth it, since our specialists will observe you from the beginning to the end of the survey. Also the tomograph is equipped with a feedback system, so that you will not only be seen, but also heard
Computer tomography with contrast is as follows:
When conducting a study with contrast, you will be delivered an intravenous catheter through which the radiopaque drug will be delivered to your body. The placement of this catheter is similar to the most common intravenous injection, and the time of administration of the drug is absolutely painless. As a rule, the patient experiences pleasant warmth all over his body, which can even positively affect the course of the treatment
