what is a ct scan?

A CT scanner is an advanced medical device that can take images of the inside of the body – almost like an X-ray, but clearer and more detailed. CT stands for “computerised tomography”.

The patient lies down on a slab that moves through a tunnel. The scanner is in the tunnel and works a little like a rotating X-ray machine.

a great example

I’VE just read the articleaboutMrSA contestant Danie Doman (YOU, 3 December) and felt I had to put pen to paper. I’m completely inspired! Here’s a man who’s saying what we all should believe: your body doesn’t define you. Usually it’s a woman who’s saying that they either lost weight or are comfortable in their bodies. I don’t think I’ve seen any other article regarding a man who isn’t perfect and who’s comfortable in his body. Kudos to him. I can’t begin to express how impressed I am. Great respect, Danie. The fact that you work with children is a boon. We need more people like you in the world, positive and beautiful inside and out. Well done to YOU for writing this article. Many young men out there aren’t perfect and will read this…

This one won’t come apart! I always get excited when the new book comes out. Thank you. JILL ROSE-INNES, EMAIL The Nurse family’s joy and courage shows how love and unity can overcome an act of evil (YOU, 26 November). I pray they continue to stand united, and never allow anyone or anything to separate them again. I wish them absolute joy. THELMA FESTER, SMS Weekend…
