Prior to the CT scan, our technical staff will explain to you the process of the examination and answer any questions you may have. In some instances, you will need to get changed into a gown prior to the scan.
The CT machine is shaped like a doughnut and is open on both ends with a short central hold in the middle where the examination table will move in and out of.
Our highly experienced radiographers will help you on to the CT table in the correct position for the scan. Once the scan commences it is important to follow the instructions given by the machine. Sometimes you may be required to follow breathing instructions for short intervals. It is important to remain still for the duration of the scan.
In the case of a joint or spinal injection, our radiographers will adequately prepare you for the radiologist (Doctor) prior to performing the procedure.
