Computer tomography
Computer tomography

CT is an x-ray procedure with a ray circling around the patients. The instrument produces numerous cross-sectional images of the respective area of investigation, which the computer then compiles into a three-dimensional, and very detailed image. In addition to diagnostics, CT is primarily used in interventional pain management. Especially in the area of the thoracic or cervical spine, this method is helpful for additional imaging of soft parts such as the lungs or the vessels, which is something a C-Arm does not offer. The diagnosis concentrates on representing bone structures in cases of stenoses, injuries or signs of wear and tear.
