Private CT Scan
Vista Health is a leading provider of CT services across the UK. We offer computerised tomography (CT) scan services with reports from specialist consultants in 3 working days. A CT scan is a painless, non-invasive procedure that uses specialised X-ray equipment to scan and diagnose inflammation, disease, cancer, strokes, fractures, or other health conditions.
A CT scanner is a ring-shaped device with X-Ray tubes inside. The smallest abnormalities in your bones, lungs, and blood vessels can be detected by analysing a series of detailed images taken from various angles.
A CT scanner generates two-dimensional 2D images from several different angles as it passes through your body, while an X-Ray takes pictures from one perspective. For your analysis, the 2D images can be stacked to generate 3D images.
What is a CT scan?
A CT scan is great for viewing parts of the body difficult to reach with other procedures. These scans can view:
- Internal organs
- Soft tissue
- Blood vessels
They work effectively by sending out multiple beams of X-rays at different angles, giving a clear picture of the scanned area. Depending on the reason for the scan, it will take between 15 minutes and 1 hour.
Advantages of a CT Scan:
- A CT-scan can help detect the size, location, and shape of a tumour. This will enable the consultant to specify the correct treatment for a cancer.
- CT scans remove the need for exploratory surgeries, reducing stress and discomfort for the patient, as well as saving valuable time.
