Then the assistant goes to the computer. Despite the fact that the researcher remains in the room alone, he can talk to a doctor at any time with a special device.

The table of the tomograph can move during the study. It moves inside the tomographic setting. During the study, the doctor may ask you not to breathe or move. When taking pictures, the camera moves around the patient's body and produces some noise. At the end of the procedure, you need to wait for a doctor to help you safely get out of the table.
