- CT, or computerized axial tomography, is a method of x-ray imaging in which the x-rays enter the body from 360 degrees, as the radiation source rotates around the patient.
- The computer calculates a series of slices, which are examined individually or can be reconstructed into a three-dimensional form. They are usually read directly from the monitor and are then printed on x-ray film.
- MRI scanning is similar in that it also generates a 360 degree scan, but it utilizes a magnetic field which makes the tissues vibrate at different frequencies. These signals are translated into gradations on the monitor, and can also be printed to x-ray film.
- Both CT and MRI images are generally presented in the form of contiguous “slices” of the region of interest.
