The terminology utilized in CT is very different from the terms used in diagnostic radiography. Much of this can be attributed to the works of Dr. Godfrey Hounsfield and Dr. Allan Cormack who shared the Nobel Prize in medicine and physiology for their work in the invention and development of the CT scanner. Also, Computed tomography (CT) can be known as one of the most important diagnostic tools of the 21 st century. While this tool requires competent operators, each subsequent technological generation has required the technologist to be even more highly efficient. Therefore, this article will show the terminology used in CT, discuss the evolution of the CT scanner, and explain how these advancements have changed the process of CT.
