CT Scan: A proper diagnosis usually requires both a clinical exam and a radiographic image. The doctor who read the CT Scan sees some variation in normal anatomy and cannot diagnose it solely by seeing the image. The doctor who is treating you and requested the CT scan can use this information along with his\her clinical findings to answer that question for you.
