CT Scan

Computerised axial tomography is an x-ray technique that takes hundreds of cross sectional images through the tissue and uses a fast computer to combine the data to produce a cross sectional view of the area.

You will need to lie in a narrow chamber for a few minutes.

This method is useful in assessing possible spread of breast cancer to other areas such as the liver and lungs.

It may also be useful in assessing the armpit and shoulder area looking for enlarged lymph nodes.
