TYPES OF CT SCANS
CT Scan Abdomen
Abdominal CT scan can accurately diagnose many
causes of abdomen pains such as inflamed colon,
colon cancer, diverticulitis, appendicitis. It is
also helpful in imaging several types of tissues
found in liver, spleen, pancreas kidneys. CT
Scans are one of the preferred methods for
diagnosing different kind of cancers including
colon cancer.
CT Angiography
CTA computed tomography angiography is used to
analyse the blood flow in arteries flowing from
the brain, lungs, kidneys, arms and till the end
of the legs. CT Angiography scans are commonly
used to treat pulmonary embolism, a condition
where one or more arteries in lungs are getting
blocked through blood clots.

TYPES OF CT SCANS
CT Chest Scan
CT chest scans are commonly used for diagnosing
the cause of continuous cough, breath shortness,
severe fever chest pain. CT chest scan can
detect even small abnormalities that could be
cancerous whereas conventional X-rays will not
detect such cancerous cells at the beginning
stage. Most of the patients who are met with
accidents use CT chest scans to identify the
damage to the organs and bones including spine
and large blood vessels.
CT Head Scan
CT Head scans helps in identifying brain tumours,
head injuries common brain diseases. It shows
images of bones, soft tissues blood vessels at
the same time. It can detect blood clots or any
kind of blood leak in the brain. Also it is
widely used to conduct radiation therapies for
brain and other tissue level cancers. Recent days
the usage of head scans are increased due to the
stress related brain disorders and road accidents
that causes skull fractures and brain damages.

x-rays where it can obtain images of different
types of tissues in bone, muscle and blood
vessels. Most commonly CT spine scans are used
before and after surgery to diagnose the spinal
damage and various types of tumours occurring in
each vertebra. Also CT spine scan is helpful in

Common Risks of CT Scans
Chance of Cancers Most common risk as many
researchers and physicians explore to the world
that the radiation in a CT scan is quite
dangerous in increasing the chance of getting
cancer. But, such statements are partially false

claustrophobia and confusions on undergoing CT
Scans.

CT Scan benefits Risks
Common Risks of CT Scans
Pregnant Women Only for pregnant women, usually
CT scans are not recommended unless there is an
emergency. If the CT is used only for chest or
head there is no risk for the baby. But, if you
undergo a CT scan for abdomen and pelvis, there
will be a mild risk for baby and a chance of
developing cancer on unborn baby.
Continuous exposure As a common rule in
radiology - the higher radiation, the greater
risk. If you are using CT scans for long-term
basis, there might be a chance of getting cancer
and other radiation related diseases. Also
childrens have chances of getting risks than
adults and very rarely their DNAs might get
damaged due to the x-ray radiations. Contrast
Material These days, a patient who is undergoing
a CT scan will be having a short medical test or
study of your previous health records to check
whether they have any medications for some other
health ailments. The contrast material, usually
iodine based can cause some allergic reaction to
patients only those have some other health issues
which will be pre-diagnosed through medical
tests. Otherwise, there will be minor reactions
such as nausea and vomiting.
7
High CT scan Radiation is harmful?
The radiation doses used in CT scans are usually
measured by Millisievert (mSv) According to
research, humans are usually gets a radiation
dose of about 3-4 mSv per year from natures
radioactive material and cosmic radiations from
space. More likely it was less than 0.5 percent
on getting a future cancer.

Precautions before after CT scan
Before CT Scan
  • You have to remove the clothes and wear a
    hospital gown
  • Remove all the metal objects you wear such as
    belt, jewellery, eye glasses etc.,
  • Stop food/drink intake a few hours before the
    scan
  • Inform the physician if you are taking any
    medication for diabetes before receiving the
    contrast drink/injection
  • Also inform your physician if you have any
    history of heart problems, asthma, diabetes,
    thyroid or kidney problems.
  • Before taking the contrast material, you will be
    signing a consent form which gives you the
    detailed risks and side effects associated with
    it. Read out and confirm with radiologists
    whether you will be allergic to the contrast
    material.
  • If you are pregnant, you should avoid CT scan and
    also you have to inform the physician. If you are
    undergoing scan other than abdomen, there will be
    no problem. But usually X-ray radiations from CT
    scan are always harmful to pregnant women.

Precautions before after CT scan
After CT Scan
  • If you take contrast material, then after the
    scan procedure, you have to take more fluids
    continuously to flush such contrast dye.
  • Once your scan is done, you will be monitored for
    some time whether you are affected with any side
    effects of contrast material. If you feel any
    pain, reddishness or swelling in the IV injected
    area, inform the specialist immediately.
  • There is no specific precautions after CT scan,
    but sometimes your doctor may advise for specific
    diet and activities based on your health
    condition.

CT scan or MRI which is best..?
Yes, many of us have a question what is the
difference between CT scan and MRI scan and
thinking about which one is better than other.

produces images of density and the tissues of a
solid organ and can provide detailed information
on head, eyes, inner ear, sinuses, chest, pelvis,
hips, reproductive systems, bladder,
gastrointestinal tract and skeletal system
whereas MRI scanners emits powerful magnetic
radio waves to produce pictures of organs, soft
tissues, bone and other internal body structures.
