CT scanning. Patient undergoing a computed tomography (CT) scan. CT scanning uses X-rays to produce cross-sectional images of the scanned area. This allows doctors to view internal body structures and diagnose medical conditions. The patient is being passed through the hole in the scanner and a computer compiles the data into multiple image slices. The results will be seen on the monitor at lower right. This scan is being done to examine the patient's teeth. Photographed at the Fondation Rothschild, Paris, France.
