What is getting a CT scan like?

A CT or CAT scan or exam is something a doctor may order for you and here's the good news - the overall procedure itself is painless and has little to no side effects. While the idea of it may cause some people a little anxiety or claustrophobia, the actual procedure itself is easy and relatively quick.
