Ct Scan Of Temporal Bone
Not quite: The CT of the sinuses focuses in on the sinuses (though the radiation goes through the entire skull) and generally covers the entire set of sinuses (sphenoid, maxillary, frontal, ethmoid). The orbital CT will cover the eye sockets (and those pictures are zoomed in). While the sinuses lies behind the eyes (& so they overlap), the focus & coverage of these scans are slightly different. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ct uses xrays taken an 360 degrees combined with a computer to see"inside" the body. The table moves as the xray tube and detectors spin around the patient 10 times a second or more! the image shows excellent soft tissue detail, enhanced with injection of intravenous contrast or oral contrast. This way the body is shown in slices, in any plane, usually axially, but ...Read more

Radiation depends on size of patient." radiation affects growing body in children more than adults. Doses to children are much less. ...Read more
My dad had a nuclear bone scan. Nuclear bone scan findings:
there are several focal areas of isotope accumulation in the region of the
sacroiliac joints bilaterally which correspond to lesions noted on the CT pelvis consistent with bony me
Possibly metastases: Nuclear bone scans usually demonstrate areas of increased bone metabolism, the bone reacting to a stimulus, such as tumor, fracture, infection, etc.Bone scan is very sensitive but not specific. Ct and MRI are cross sectional imaging that can more specifically identify the pathology and characterize the abnormalities on bone scan. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Brain CT scan shows three calcified nodular lesions with no perilesional edema in left frontal and left occipital. Largest measuring approx 5x3mm?
See comments: Not sure of your precise question, but will comment on your results.

Unknown: CT of the brain does deliver radiation but the likelihood of developing malignancy from one or two studies is unknown. One must weigh the benefit to be gained from the study against whatever risk may be present. Careful selection of patients, particularly children is important when considering imaging.

Bone is a living growing tissue made mostly of collagen (protein that provides soft framework) & the mineral calcium phosphate that adds strength & hardens the framework. Two types of bone are found in the body; cortical (dense compact outer layer) & trabecular (makes up inner layer, ...Read more
