CT (computerized tomography) scan

04 May 2011
A CT scan shows up areas of the inside of the body. The CT scanner takes a series of x-rays from different angles. A computer uses the x-rays to build up a 3D picture of the inside of the body. CT scans are painless but the child may be given a sedative or general anaesthetic to make sure that they lie still.
