CT is performed in patient at suspicious of malignant tumours, brain and head pathology: trauma of the cranial bones, basal skull fracture.
Diseases of facial bones, teeth, jaws, the thyroid and parathyroid glands, temporal bones.
Pathology of paranasal sinuses, including sinusitis.
Impairment of hearing, otitis and temporal bones pathology.
Vascular impairment such as malformation, stenosis, aneurysm, atherosclerosis and haemorrhages.
Oncological disease, its features, location, details of grown and vascularisation.
Impaired development of organs and tissues
Traumas of the eye and the orbit, bones, joints and spine damage.
Tuberculosis, pleurisy, other diseases of the lungs, thorax and mediastinum.
Pathology of the abdominal cavity organs, retroperitoneal space and pelvis.
Inflammation and degenerative changes of the joints.
Impairment of the soft tissues.
Depending on the study the patient should take off clothes and all accessories like jewellery and watches.
Also, you should warn the radiologist if you are pregnant, have diabetes, asthma, allergy or any implanted devices or metal constructions.
After that you would be asked to lie on the special couch which moves into the scanner. Radiologist may also ask you to hold breath for a moment.
On completion of the scanning you would be able to stand up and put on your clothes.
Severe renal insufficiency or iodine allergy in case of CT scan with contrast enhancing.
Iodine allergy in case of CT scan with contrast enhancing.
Usually there is no need for any special preparation before the CT.
CT of the pelvis: Keep diet for a few days and avoid peeing for few hours before the examination, cleansing Enema may rarely be required.
CT of the abdominal cavity, the kidneys and the suprarenal glands: Avoid any gas-producing products for 3 days before the scanning and keep your bladder normally filled before it.
Computed tomography allows to detect disease on the early stages;
Opportunity to identify the cause of the pathology and prescribe right treatment;
Non-invasive completely painless technique;
Unlike other methods produced image shows organs, bones, vessels and tissues at the same time;
The radiologist works during whole study, he overlooks the images on the display, evaluates it and makes the impression.
КТ с усилением проводится для улучшения визуализации тканей полых органов, сосудов шеи, аорты, иных крупных сосудов и вен, печени и органов грудной клетки. Контрастный раствор может быть принят перорально или введен внутривенно. Йодосодержащие препараты имеют ряд противопоказаний, к которым относятся период лактации, беременность, почечная и печеночная недостаточность, сахарный диабет и аллергия на йод.
Компьютерная томография - диагностика заболеваний быстро и надежно!
Computed tomography is a modern diagnostic method based on X-ray features which allows to get detailed image of the target organ. CT method scans the area of examination slide by slide with 5-10mm steps and then computer process the 3D model of the investigated region. Using the CT in Moscow we can effectively understand condition of any organ.
During the CT patient lies on the special platform in the device which scans him with X-ray allowing radiologist to see the organ on the display and understand its condition. Also, specialist can estimate X-ray density of tissues and get additional information about possible pathology. Tomogram is a map showing the X-ray absorption in the human body.
Advantages of computed tomography in Medscan
Undergo CT in Медскан.рф means get the best result with up-to-date equipment to make the clear diagnose. Usually, work-up may require some additional test which also can be performed in Medscan diagnostic center. There are very few limitation for CT./p>
What is the difference between CT and MRI?
CT and MRI are both modern and very effective technique, but they are based on different physics. CT of the any part of the body shows the condition of the organ based on the X-ray absorption and MRI involving magnetic fields influence of the water molecules in tissues. With CT, specialists can estimate density of the organ, while MRI provides only visual pattern of the study area. In some case both method may be recommended at the same time to get comprehensive understanding of pathological process.
