A CT or CAT scan is a shortened name for computerized tomography. A CT scan takes pictures of the inside of the body. The pictures are more detailed than a typical x-ray. During a CT scan of the neck, pictures are taken of cross sections or slices of the structures in your body. When contrast is used during a CT scan of the neck, the structures are highlighted even more.
