CT scanning stands for computed tomography and is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.

Sometimes called CAT scanning, CT scanning combines a series of X-ray views taken from many different angles and computer processing to create cross-sectional images (or slices) of the bones and soft tissues inside your body.

The resulting images can be compared to looking down at single slices of bread from a loaf. Your doctor will be able to look at each of these slices individually or perform additional visualization to view your body from different angles.

In some cases, CT images can be combined to create 3-D images. These cross-sectional image scans provide greater clarity and reveal more details than regular X-ray exams.
