After a person has been in a car accident, they are understandably in shock. Car accidents happen quickly, oftentimes before either party had time to react. For those who have been injured in a car accident, most of the trauma often ends up being in the head and neck, although cars with airbags are supposed to protect on impact.

Once the initial shock is over, it is time to get the extent of the injuries checked out via a CT scan. In order to understand what getting a CT scan means, it is important to understand the basic idea behind x-ray technology. Obviously, a doctor cannot look at a person's bones just on site. Rather, the doctor needs the patient to get an x-ray.

The same thing goes for a CT scan, which is a more advanced form of x-ray technology. While an x-ray can see the bones, a CT scan can see the bones and the tissue in a far more detailed manner. This can be of help to a car accident injury victims, because head traumas can result in brain damage or clots, which this kind of scan can detect.

Basically, what will happen is that the patient will be positioned on an examination table, which will then be moved back until it is directly under the scanner. The patient will have to remain very still, even holding his or her breath each time the scanner passes through. The result will be a three-dimensional view that will help the patient be properly treated.
