CT Scanning

CT is a painless, non-invasive and accurate method of imaging soft tissue, lung, bone and blood vessels, which provides true multi-planar images of the entire body.

A CT scanner is an x-ray tube and an x-ray detector housed in a gantry shaped like a giant ring. The x-ray tube and the detector move around in a circle; when x-rays are emitted they are received by the detector and converted into a two dimensional image. This image can be reconstructed to produce virtual 3D images.

CT scans can be performed on any part of the body and are very useful because they can demonstrate several kinds of body tissue with great clarity. CT is an important tool in medical imaging and a sensitive method for diagnosing a wide range of conditions including cancer, heart and vascular disease, trauma and musculoskeletal disorders. 

More recently CT is being utilised in preventative medicine and screening, for example, the use of CT virtual colonoscopy for patients with a high risk of colon cancer.
