CT Scan Chest

CT scan chest is a computed tomography imaging test for the chest.

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.

Chest CT is prescribed by the doctor to examine abnormalities found on chest x-rays. This Ct scan helps in diagnosing the causes of signs or symptoms of chest disease, such as cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, or fever.
