Don’t worry, though. There are openings, so you’re shut into a machine. This is necessary because CT scans take multiple pictures from different angles to give doctors a complete view of your body.

CT scans can capture many things inside your body, including bones, organs, and blood vessels. Some doctors use a special dye to perform a CT scan to determine if there are any blockages. The CT scan captures the dye going through your body, which other imaging tests can’t do. This is a great way to discover kidney stones that don’t appear in X-rays!
