CT SCANNING & SIMULATION

Home / For Patients / Technology / CT SCANNING & SIMULATION

CT Scanning is used to map the organs and structures within the body.  When a treatment plan is developed, a CT Simulation is necessary to acquire measurements and other technical data.  The patient is positioned on the CT scanner table where multiple scans are performed to generate a digital 3D reconstruction of the tumor area.  The information collected during simulation helps the radiation oncologist and other staff members prepare and deliver the radiation.
