Computer tomography (CT) is an examination technique that allows a detailed look inside a human being. It is a cross-sectional imaging technique based on X-ray technology and provides images of the inside of the body in layers.
Conventional X-ray images are taken with the help of X-rays. These penetrate the body, which is weakened to different degrees by the radiation, depending on the type of tissue. The weakening image is captured by film or a suitable measuring apparatus and made visible.
