A CT scan or computed tomography scan (formerly known as computed axial tomography or CAT scan) is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to get detailed images of the body noninvasively for diagnostic purposes. It combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles around your body and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images (slices) of the bones, blood vessels, and soft tissues inside your body.
The multilayer CT scanner of Eurodijagnostika clinic in Belgrade is a modern open-type device for getting a detailed picture of the condition of each scanned organ. With a help of CT technology, a professional team of doctors can easily diagnose your condition and decide about your further treatment.
A Multi-slice CT scanner is especially important for lung imaging and helps to diagnose severe acute respiratory syndrome caused by a coronavirus, as well as for a follow-up examination of lungs after the acute stage of the disease.
The advantages of multilayer CT scanner diagnostics are:
- Quick, easy, and painless examination
- Application of very small doses of radiation
- Imaging options for patients with pacemaker, metal prostheses, insulin pumps
- Open-type MSCT scanner is adequate for people with claustrophobia.
For the examination with a multilayer CT scanner to be completely successful, patients need to inform the medical staff of the Eurodijagnostika Clinic in Belgrade about allergies, the presence of diabetes, if they are overweight (because for people with 130 kg (260 lbs) or more MSCT is not an option).
