CT or CAT scan was independently developed by Sir Godfrey Hounsfield and Dr. Alan Cormack. . For this, they were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in 1979. It has become a big achievement in the field of medical imaging technology. Basically, it involves X-rays and a computer to get the cross-sectional view of the brain.
CT of the brain can be done with or without contrast, but it is not necessarily required. CT scanning of the brain is done in cases of bleeding, brain injury and skull fracture as well as for cerebral aneurysms. Even in cases of enlarged brain in patients with hydrocephalus this unique imaging technology is very helpful. The other medical symptoms for which this scan is called for could be anything from a headache, weekness, seizure, confusion, etc.
