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:

  • Bones 
  • Internal organs
  • Soft tissue
  • Muscles
  • 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.

Private CT Scan FAQs

How does a CT scan work?

A CT scanner uses a computer and X-Rays to create detailed images of the inside of your body. An X-Ray tube creates X-rays which are passed through your body and are collected by detectors on each side. The data is transferred to a computer which creates a 3D image of the body which is displayed on the screen. 

What is the difference between a CT scan and an MRI scan?

CT scans and MRI scans are both used to record images of the body. A CT uses X-Rays whereas an MRI uses radio waves and magnets. Both CT and MRI are used to diagnose issues with body parts such as the brain, wrist, ankles and joints.

MRI is the best imaging modality for getting a detailed and in depth look at the majority of the body areas. MRI is widely used as the best and preferred option for neuro imaging, musculoskeletal imaging, study of soft tissue, ligaments. tendons, joint spaces, spinal cord, disc spaces and for many other body areas. CT scanning is the preferred choice of investigation for certain areas such as the chest where MRI has its own limitations.

What happens after the CT scan?

It is rare to experience any complications from CT scans; however, it is possible to have an allergic reaction to the medium contract injection. In this case, there is medication on hand to deal with the reaction immediately.

Your images and report are reviewed and sent on to your healthcare specialist to give a diagnosis and organise any further treatment, if necessary.
