Computerized Tomography (CT) provides cross-sectional images of any body part. Cross-sectional images are often described as looking into a loaf of bread by cutting the loaf into thin slices. When the image slices are reassembled by computer software, the result is a very detailed multidimensional view of the body's interior used to assist in the diagnosis of conditions of organs and body structures.
