Caption: CT scan. Radiographer observing a patient (upper centre) undergoing a CT scan. CT (computed tomography) scanning is a diagnostic technique in which X-rays are passed through the body at different angles. A computer then produces a cross-sectional image of the tissue (lower centre), which is examined by a radiographer (far right). Also known as CAT (computed axial tomography) scanning, this technique provides clearer and more detailed information about body tissues than X-rays used by themselves. It also reduces the amount of dangerous radiation to which the patient is exposed.
