Computed Tomography

Certificate: Online

Computed Tomography is an advanced radiographic imaging modality that utilizes highly-collimated fan-shaped x-ray beam and array of radiation detectors to produce cross-sectional images of human body structures and organs needed by physicians for diagnostic purposes.  Computed tomographic images can be reconstructed in various anatomical orientations to demonstrate image details that allow for better visualization of pathology, diagnostic analysis, and radiologic interpretations.
