A CT scan or computed tomography scan is a medical imaging technique used to obtain detailed internal images of the body noninvasively for diagnostic purposes. In cryonics, the CT scanner is used, for example, to determine the quality of cryonics patients' cryoprotection.

In 2011, the Alcor Life Extension Foundation began performing CT scans on neuropatients after cooling to liquid nitrogen temperature has been completed.[1] In 2018, Alcor bought a CT scanner paid for by the 2018 $5,000,000 research donation.[2]
