What does it consist of?
Once you have been placed on the CT table, it will begin to rotate around your body to obtain cross-sectional projections of bones, blood vessels and soft tissues, which are subsequently grouped using Artificial Intelligence. Instead of obtaining a single image, as occurs with conventional radiography, CT obtains multiple images with higher quality and sharpness, which increases diagnostic precision.
CASES IN WHICH IT IS RECOMMENDED
Cranial CT is mainly indicated in the following cases:
- Evaluation of the state of the skull after suffering a strong blow or trauma to the head.
- Evaluation of the causes of symptoms such as severe headaches and difficulty hearing or speaking.
- Diagnosis and monitoring of tumor, degenerative and vascular pathologies.
