Why is CT - BRAIN WITH PNS ?

CT Brain is a diagnostic test which makes use of X-rays to create images of brain. These images are then studied to determine whether any abnormal changes have taken place in the brain or any of its parts. CT scan is a much more advanced test than the regular X-ray. An X-ray film will show in detail only those abnormal changes occurring in bones and joints. A CT scan on the other hand, clearly shows organs like brain, lungs, liver, muscles, blood vessels etc., in great detail. Therefore, when the internal organs are to be studied in more detail, CT scan is preferred over X-ray or USG (Ultrasound scan). It is done to understand the causes for migraine and nasal issues as well.
