In imaging—specifically, medical imaging—a diagnostic system whereby X-rays are passed through an object (such as a human body) ast a variety of angles to produce a set of cross-sectional views of that object which can in turn be used to generate a three-dimensional representation of it. Such views are then used to search for biological anomalies. Abbreviated CT.
