A CT scan creates cross-sectional images of the body using computers and rotating X-ray machines. These images contain more information than standard X-ray images. They are capable of displaying soft tissues, blood vessels, and bones in various parts of the body.
A CT scan can be used to see the:

During a CT scan, you lie down in a tunnel-like machine while the inside rotates and takes a series of X-rays from various angles.
CT scans can produce detailed images of your bones, tissues, and even blood vessels.
However, the images generated by these scans are in shades of black and grey. Even a trained eye can struggle to distinguish one tissue type from another in certain situations.
Contrast dyes, which contain barium or iodine, can be administered orally or intravenously (in your vein). These dyes improve the contrast and resolution of the final images produced by the CT scan, allowing for a more precise diagnosis.
A CT scan has many applications, but it is especially useful for diagnosing diseases and evaluating injuries. The imaging technique can assist your doctor in the following ways:
CT scans do not necessitate much preparation. If necessary, a CT scan with or without contrast can be performed quickly. In fact, this occurs in the vast majority of cases where a CT scan is required to diagnose traumatic injuries or a stroke.
After the CT scan, the images are sent to a radiologist for review. A radiologist is a doctor who specialises in using imaging techniques such as CT scans and X-rays to diagnose and treat conditions.
The contrast dye you were given will be naturally eliminated from your body through your urine and stool after the scan. Because contrast dye can cause kidney strain, you may be advised to drink plenty of water after your exam.
After the images are evaluated, your doctor will tell you if a contrast dye is required for your scan and what action you should take.
