Computed tomography (CT) uses special x-ray equipment to obtain images of the body from different angles. It allows cardiovascular disease, infections, injury, musculoskeletal disorders and tumours to be diagnosed and monitored. It also allows the type of medical and surgical treatment needed to be determined, and to assess the response to the treatment.
