ct scanning

CT Scanning & Simulation

CT Scanning is used to map the organs and structures within the body. When a treatment plan is developed, a CT Simulation is necessary to acquire measurements and other technical data. The patient is positioned on the CT scanner table where multiple scans are performed to generate a digital 3D reconstruction of the body and tumor area. The information collected during simulation helps the radiation oncologist and other staff members prepare and deliver the radiation.
