    @samantha34ize Back then, the technology was far inferior to todays current generation of CT scanners. Today, it uses far less X-ray radiation because the computer can resolve far more image information from far less exposure.

    Where they scan, depends on what they are looking for.For some conditions, such as mine, they focus on the base of the skull. I have Arnold Chiari Malformation, type 1, In this disorder, the whole at the base of the skull, is too small, which causes an increase in pressure within the skull, and herniation
    ( pushing out of) brain material, from the cerebellum, down into the spinal column. In my case, its 15mm. Meds have helps my symptoms a lot, I still have to take precautions, though.

    My son is autistic and he is having a ct today. I showed him this clip to explain it to him, so maybe he could understand better and not wig-out when we got there.

    If they suspect a neck fracture, he should be wearing a firm collar to stabilize the neck. Otherwise, they may create paralyze him.
