CT Scan

CT scanning is a procedure that uses specialised X-ray equipment to diagnose inflammation, disease, cancer, fractures, strokes and many other health conditions.

What is a CT Scan?

A CT scan is a pain free, non-invasive procedure that takes a combined series of X-ray images from many different angles through the ring shaped device containing X-ray tubes inside. This can detect any small abnormalities in your bones, lungs, soft tissues and blood vessels. The computer processes cross sectional, highly detailed images of the body taken from various angles.

CT scans are predominately used to examine people who may have internal injuries and the scan can be used to visualize all parts of the body.

What can a CT scan find?

A CT scan may be recommended by a doctor to help:

  • View difficult parts of the body that are hard to reach with other procedures such as bones, internal organs, muscles, soft tissue and blood vessels
  • Diagnose disorders such as bone tumours and fractures within the muscles and bones
  • Identify the location of a tumour, blood clot or infection
  • Observe and monitor diseases within the body such as cancer, heart, lung and liver diseases
  • Monitor the effectiveness of medical treatment
  • Guide procedures
  • Detect internal bleeding and injuries

Your CT scan can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the purpose of the scan.
