CT Services

Our aim is to provide high quality medical imaging with empathy to the local community by ensuring highly trained and caring staff are available every step of the way.

Whilst an appointment is not always essential, we highly recommend pre-booking an appointment so that we do not keep you waiting. Some procedures take up to 30 minutes and it is essential to have an appointment for such procedures, eg. chest, brain & or abdomen.

More Information about CT

A CT scan, CAT scan or computed tomography scan, is a medical imaging procedure that uses computer-processed combinations of many X-ray measurements taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional images of specific areas of a scanned object, allowing the user to see inside the object without cutting.

Please see CT preparation

Before the start of the CT scan, you lie down on a table, possibly in a specific position. The technician may use pillows to ensure that you stay in the correct position to get a quality image. Our qualified technician moves the table via a remote. The CT machine looks like a giant doughnut made of plastic and metal. You will most likely go through the machine several times. You may also have to hold your breath during brief individual scans, which last only 10 to 20 seconds. If a CT scan requires the use of a contrast dye, that is generally given intravenously at the time of the scan. An all-over warm sensation or taste of metal in the mouth can occur and only last a few moments. Severe allergic reactions to contrast are rare and would be managed by on-site Doctor and/ or Radiographer staff. If a contrast CT scan is required this will be explained to you and a consent form will be completed prior.
