Caption: CT scanning. Patient being aligned for a chest CT scan. Computed tomography (CT) is a diagnostic technique that sends small doses of X-rays through the body at different angles to produce cross-sectional images of the area scanned. The patient, and the bed on which he is lying, will be passed through the hole in the scanner. A computer compiles the X-ray data into multiple image slices. CT scans are widely used to locate tumours, as they are good at distinguishing soft tissue from bone. This is a Siemens Somatom Sensation CT scanner, which was first introduced in 2003.
