Americans Would Rather Travel Than Pay High Costs

Affordable, quality care apparently trumps the commitment to travel. Approximately 50 million uninsured Americans are choosing medical tourism rather than pay for medical care in the US.

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.
