CT Head
 
 

A CT (computed tomography) head, also known as a cranial CT scan, is an X-ray of the head and provides precise images of the brain, skull, eye sockets and sinuses. A CT head scan is done when they are brain infections or tumors, bleeding or stroke in the brain, fluid buildup in the skull or a birth defect of the brain or head. It is performed to diagnose headaches, hearing disorders, fainting, vision loss, speaking problems, swallowing difficulties, tingling and numbness, muscle weakness and unusual behavior or thinking.
