Computerised Tomography (CT) scan

Computerised Tomography (or shortened to CT) is a process which involves using a x-ray machine and a computer to produce detailed images (pictures) of ‘sections’ of your body.

The test is painless and will help your doctor to diagnose your condition.

A CT scan will involve lying still on a scan table which moves through a scanner. The radiographer will be in a separate room, but will be able to see you and provide you with instructions through a  two-way microphone.  Once your scan has been completed you will be able to resume your normal activities.
