The aim of this activity is to make you familiar with simulation and to use interactive simulation to understand how CT scans are made.


This activity is a part of ESTABLISH IBSE “CT scans” (from unit: Medical Imaging, Activity 2.4) in which students learn how a CT scan is created.  It is not normal that students would be able to explore this topic practically in lab and so an interactive simulation is used to help to understand the principles of creating CT scans. Follow the original student activity as presented within the unit on Medical Imaging.
