CT Scan for Localization
A CT scan for localization is a diagnostic imaging test that creates detailed images of the body's internal structures. This type of CT scan is typically used to help locate a specific area of the body for a medical procedure or surgery.
CT scans for localization may be used in a variety of medical procedures, such as biopsy, radiation therapy, and surgery. For example, a CT scan may be used to locate a tumor before a biopsy is performed, or to guide the placement of radiation therapy for cancer treatment. In some cases, a CT scan may be used to guide the placement of a medical device, such as a catheter or needle.
