These images have been proven to be clinically useful in the diagnosis of spine and head injuries, intracranial tumors, blood clots in the brain, eye trauma, soft tissue lesions in the extremities, gastrointestinal lesions, abdominal and pelvic malignancies, and hepatic metastases. CT is also used to evaluate intestinal obstruction!;, assess intra-abdominal abnormalities and to examine musculoskeletal degeneration.
