CT scan chest is a computed tomography imaging test for the chest. This scan uses an x-ray beam and computer technology to create more detailed images of the chest structures and chest organs than regular X-rays. The images produced via CT scan chest give more detailed information about the diseases and injuries to the chest organs.

In a CT scan chest, an x-ray beam rotates in a circle and creates images of the internal structure of the chest in the form of slices. To combine the slices and produce detailed images, the computer system is used. The computer processes the slices and creates the complete images and displays those images on the monitor.
