CT Scans are a series of x-rays images taken in fine slices of less than 1mm thick.
The slices are then collated for analysis. By taking “slices” the technology is much more detailed than a single x-ray. Each scan is specifically created for the condition and body part being investigated. Several sets of images in different angles/directions are usually taken.
