Medical Tourism is Thriving in India

Especially in the country’s healthcare capital, Chennai, where the cost of treatment is sometimes 1/10th of what it runs you in America or the UK, and where scores of specialty hospitals attract an estimated 150 Medical Tourists every day!

Computed Tomography (CT Scan)

Computed tomography or CT scan also goes by the name of computer axial tomography scan (CAT scan). A CT scan is an imaging procedure that generates many two dimensional images of a 3 dimensional object by making sections. The process of slicing or making sections is called as tomography.

A CT scan machine uses X-rays to take several pictures of an object from different angles. These images are then combined together to form a three dimensional image. The procedure is painless and may require the patient to abstain from food or fluids for sometime before undergoing the scan. Sometimes a dye may also be used in oral or intravenous form to enhance the quality of images.
