Computed Tomography (CT)
A CT scan uses x-rays and high-powered computers to obtain cross-sectional images of the body. At Astra Radiology, Auckland, we have CT scanners at four of our branches.
CT images show all types of tissue including lungs, brain, bone, muscles and abdominal organs with great clarity. CT scans are often used to guide fine needle biopsies, nerve root injections and other minimally invasive procedures.
