The computer tomography is one of the most exact ways of obtaining the image of bodies. The modern and effective technology of a multislice computer tomography is applied from the middle of the 90th years. The x-ray computer tomography is based on raying of a body of the person X-rays with the subsequent processing of the received image in a uniform cut via the computer. In the course of performance of a computer tomography the x-ray tube continuously, with a high speed, rotates around the patient who lies in a chamber. At the same time pictures are made automatically. It should be noted that this method of research is very simple for the patient.
Sphere of use of a computer tomography
The computer tomography is applied to recognition of diseases of abdominal organs - a gall bladder, a liver, a pancreas of an aorta and a spleen. Thanks to a computer tomography tumors of the above-stated bodies, various inflammatory changes, and also malformations successfully come to light. It should be noted that the computer tomography allows to diagnose practically all types of damages of a brain - hemorrhage, signs of traumatic damages, heart attacks of a tumor, a cyst. The computer tomography is also used at routine inspections as the x-ray computer tomography can reveal early symptoms of diseases, in particular tumoral defeats when patients have no complaints to the health. At the same time these changes in most cases cannot be distinguished by other methods of researches.
It is necessary to tell that the computer tomography is carried out on the special device similar to a pressure chamber. For performance of a computer tomography the patient keeps within on a special couch which moves in a chamber then the patient's pictures within several seconds are made. In the course of performance of a computer tomography unpleasant feelings at patients are absent.
