    Yes two years ago for my back pain. It wasn't a kidney stone. Yes I did--wear and tear of my metal rod from having Sciliosis over 20 years.

    Yes four times. Twice for the orbits before an MRI. Once for a lung that needed a thoractomy. The fourth for the lungs as a preventative measure.

    Yes I have had a few and I wouldn't hesitate to undergo more if my doc or specialist wrote up a prescription for one. There is usually significant evidence discerned by this scan. Mine were associated with a brain-bleed that I survived...
    A computerized tomography (CT) scan combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images, or slices, of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues inside your body. CT scan images provide more detailed information than X-rays.

    A CT scan has many uses, but is particularly well-suited to quickly examine people who may have internal injuries from car accidents or other types of trauma. A CT scan can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body and is used to diagnose disease or injury as well as to plan medical, surgical or radiation treatment.

    Yes. Two years ago, I was diagnosed with uterine cancer, and my oncologist wanted to take a look before he decided on the method of surgery. After he looked over the results, he sent me to a cardiologist, because my heart was enlarged. Without the CT, I probably wouldn't have known.
