What Will Be Examined During a CT of the Head?
With the help of a CT examination, it is possible to detect and diagnose brain-related diseases and tumours.
Whether you suffer from specific complaints or as a preventive measure due to family history, a CT of the head, which produces detailed images, provides the opportunity to evaluate changes in the millimetre range.
A computer tomography (CT) is a special X-ray examination to get cross-section images. It’s a good procedure to display organs and body structures. This cross-sectional diagnostic method offers greater clarity and more detail about internal organs, bones, soft tissues, and blood vessels than normal X-ray examinations.
The CT machine is shaped like a huge ring; you are driven through that ring. The examination lasts five to ten minutes. To produce images, X-rays in very low doses (Low Dose) are used.
In some cases, it is necessary to administer a contrast medium. This makes it easier to detect or rule out vascular diseases, tumours, and inflammations.
Before a CT scan can take place certain requirements must be met. The CT scan always must be medically justified. This is due to the use of X-rays. As with every X-ray examination, there is still a minimal chance of tumours developing despite the low radiation dose. For this reason, every CT scan is subject to strict regulations.
If there have already been cases of cancer in your family, a CT scan may be wise.
Suspected life-threatening brain haemorrhage, for example after an accident.
