Hello rifana, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Implant in medicine is a device used to replace the structure or function of a body part. Where the basic material of the implant can be titanium, silicon or other materials depending on its function. In this case for example titanium implants that can be used to replace bone in orthopedic cases. Besides implants can also be 'electronic' for example implants to install a heart rhythm regulator that is mounted on the heart. Implants can also have bioactive qualities, for example in the form of hormone drugs such as implants for the use of contraceptives (KB implants). Therefore when discussing implants, the definitions and uses of implants and medical are very broad.
Unfortunately you did not mention the type of implant you are referring to. Where CT scanning is an imaging or radiological examination that can be done to see the condition of certain body organs. Or by definition CT scan is a medical examination with the use of a combination of X-rays and a computer system to see the condition in the body and can be modified in 3 dimensions so that they can see organs or tissues of the body in more detail.
Not all implant procedures require a CT scan or other radiological examination. This depends on what type of implant will be done. In this case the CT scan or other radiological examination serves to help visualize or see the inside of the body so that it can help when installing the implant. In addition to the time interval also there is no specific time when it must be done before the implant.
