A CT scan is carried out using a special x-ray machine which produces an image of a cross-section or ‘slice’ of the body. A narrow fan-shaped beam of x-rays is produced from inside the gantry and rotates in a complete circle around you. This information passes to a computer which produces a picture of the internal structure of the body.
The 128 slice CT scanner at GibMed International Hospital takes less than a second to produce each cross-sectional image, which can vary in thickness from one millimetre to one centimetre.
