Only a few devices in the rich arsenal of medical equipment can match the popularity of the computed tomography scanner (or CT scanner).

Throughout the industrialised world, it would be difficult to find anyone who was not familiar with CT scanning either personally or indirectly, perhaps via an acquaintance or a popular science television programme.
