64 LightSpeed VCT CT
Computed tomography (CT) is a modern method of continuous layer-by- layer scanning of organs and systems. Based on the technique of sequential X- ray illumination of the object of study and mathematical restoration of the image of the resulting scan on the display screen.
Therefore, during MSCT (multispiral computed tomography), the x-ray tube and the transducers opposite to it are rotated around the human body.
As a result of this process, a series of cross sections (scans) can be obtained. This information is then processed at a medical station where images can be obtained in any projection. Contrast agents are used for CT imaging to better visualize the organ or system under study.

Modern CT scans allow images of very thin layers, from 0.5 to 10 mm, to be obtained. The image can be planar (2D) and 3D, allowing you to zoom in or out, turn, rotate, view from above or below, etc.
