How does CT work?

CT uses X-rays to perform its work. These X-rays come from an X-ray tube which is placed inside a round machine called the gantry. The part of your body to be scanned goes inside a hole in this gantry.

Why is CT such a good modality?

Ordinary X-ray pictures are one-dimensional representations of body parts but CT allows us to section the body to view its inner parts. Thus, the skull X-ray only shows us the outer part, whereas CT shows us the inner parts of the brain.
