A chest CT is a picture taken of horizontal slices of your chest and the computer projection of these pictures. The chest CT provides detailed images of the structure of your chest. These images are compared to your chest x-ray. Chest CT assists with detection of problems of the chest not easily found on chest x-ray. Occasionally, the use of an injected contrast material is required.
