Parts and working of CT scan machines
Scanning machines consist of movable tables on which the patient lays which then slides in the donut like hole. It also consists of a movable ring around the hole which helps in scanning the body and detector equipment that helps in identifying the problem.
Throughout the process certain x-rays are detected from different angles and the whole body is examined. The detector which is on opposite side detects the problem and transmits all the details to the computer which then analyses all the data and produces cross sectional images of the body parts. Cross sectional images which are produced are known as tomograms. These images then are taken out in the form of X-ray reports and even can be displayed on monitors and can be stored in computers as well.
