CT scans. Technician viewing computed tomography (CT) scans on computer screens. 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. A computer compiles the X-ray data into multiple image slices. CT scans are widely used to locate tumours in the body, as they are good at distinguishing soft tissues from bone.
