Word! CT Scan or CAT Scan

Word! CT Scan or CAT Scan

CT Scan or CAT Scan

(En español: Tomografía computada)

Say: c t skan or kat skan

Actually, CT scans have nothing to do with cats, except that when people talk about them, they usually say "CAT scan" instead of "CT scan." CT stands for computed tomography, so you can see why people prefer to say "CT." CT scans are a kind of X-ray that gives doctors a much better picture of what's going on inside the body. Regular X-rays show your bones and some other parts of the body, but CT scans show much more detail. Like X-rays, CT scans don't hurt. When someone is sick or injured, doctors use them to help figure out what might be wrong.
