Computed tomography (CT) is a computerized diagnostic imaging procedure to create detailed images of internal organs, soft tissue, bones, and blood vessels. The procedure involves aiming a narrow beam of X-rays on the patient’s body and is quickly rotated around the body to produce cross-sectional images of specific areas of the scanned body part.

Computed tomography is extensively used to diagnose diseases of the circulatory system, to detect small abnormalities, blood vessel aneurysm, internal bleeding, kidney stones, and detect abnormal cancer cell growth among others.

CT sometimes involves the use of contrast dye or contrast agent. The dye is either given orally or is injected into a vein or given by enema. The contrast agent highlights specific areas inside the body that produces clearer pictures.

The increasing prevalence of orthopedic disorders, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer are the major factors driving the CT market. Moreover, rising demand for improved healthcare is leading to the use of advanced diagnostic for treatment purpose.
