Computed Tomography

Computed tomography (CT) is a well-established modality used to acquire three dimensional representations of different parts of the body, avoiding tissue superposition and yielding high contrast images of different organs and tissues. With a good spatial resolution, CT images can provide anatomical information of lesions and diseases, and allow for precise measurements of 3D irregular structures. Furthermore, a CT scan can also be coupled with the administration of a contrast agent to provide functional information on the physiology of organs and systems, allowing for improved detection and diagnosis of potential diseases.
