CT and Ultrasound

Ultrasound and CT Scan (Computed Tomography) are two of the most widely used medical imaging techniques. The techniques use different principles to generate an image for diagnostic purposes.

CT Scan Procedure

During CT scans, patients are moved through the scanning system. A source of X-rays and an X-ray detector also rotate in synchronicity so that the X-rays that are passed through the region of interest can produce different image slices in axial or helical mode. The multiple images are then computed to create a view of the organ. The prepared CT image can be immediately viewed on a television monitor or recorded for storage and analysis later.

The advantages of CT scans are most evident in screenings for cancer (tumors), injuries, or abnormalities inside the body. The scans can also be combined with other techniques, such as ultrasound or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), for greater definition and precision.

Ultrasound Procedure

During a medical ultrasound, a probe is passed over the region of interest to send sound waves into the area. To minimize air bubbles between the probe and the skin, a jelly is applied to the region first. The patient is sometimes asked to change positions to get a better view of the target area. The images obtained measurements can be viewed or stored for use later.

Ultrasound is used for diagnostic applications, such as visualizing muscles, tendons, internal organs, to determine its size, structures, any lesions or other abnormalities.
