CT Guided Pain Management

People may go to great lengths to find a solution for their physical pain. But only the right treatment can give the desired results. Getting a clear picture of what is causing the pain helps in the treatment process. Computerized tomography (CT) uses a combination of X-ray and a computer to produce pictures of the organs, bones, and other tissues inside the human body.

The procedure is highly effective in detecting internal injuries caused as a result of an accident or other trauma. A CT scan gives a detailed image of all the body parts which helps in the effective diagnosis of a disease or an injury. A CT scan is more detail-oriented than a normal X-ray.

When to consider a CT scan?

Computerized Tomography is useful under the following situations:

  • To identify internal injuries and internal bleeding
  • To monitor cancer, heart diseases, and liver masses
  • To check the effectiveness of cancer treatment
  • To diagnose and detect bone disorders
  • To locate a tumor or the site of an infection
  • To guide surgery and radiation therapy

What Happens During the Procedure?

  • A CT scan is a painless procedure which gets over within thirty minutes at the least
  • The patient is made to lie down in a motorized table which slides through the opening into a tunnel
  • Sometimes straps are used to help the patient stay in position
  • As the table moves towards the scanner, detectors and X-ray tube rotate around the patient
  • Each rotation of the detectors and X-ray tube yields images of the body
