CT scans are a kind of <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/DevosChildrens/en/kids/word-xray.html/">X-ray</a> 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.</p>Tomografía computadaEn realidad, muchas personas la llaman simplemente “tomografía”.
