How do CT scans work?

By combining specialised X-Ray equipment and computer generated images, our experts can take a clear look at the inside of your body. During a standard X-Ray, just one X-Ray beam is sent out to capture the image whereas, in a Computerised Tomography (CT) scan, several X-Ray beams are sent out at different angles, which means our experts can see a more comprehensive image.

 

What can be viewed during a CT scan?

Most areas of the body can be seen during a CT scan including bones and joints, internal organs, soft tissue and the brain. By looking at these areas, our experts can gather information to help them diagnose and monitor a number of conditions including inflammation, disease and, cancer.

 

What happens during a CT scan?

During your appointment, you will usually be asked to change into a hospital gown, depending on the area of the body which is to be scanned, and then be taken to the CT scanning room. In the room, you will be asked to lay down on a bed-like platform which is encircled by a large, doughnut-shaped machine.

The radiologist or consultant will then leave the room and speak to you via an intercom and advise you of what’s happening throughout the scan. Once the scan starts, the machine will be positioned around the area of your body which needs investigating, before scanning the area.

In some cases, you may be asked to drink a liquid dye before the scan or a dye may be administered by injection, to improve the quality of the images. CT scans are a safe procedure and although you will be exposed to X-Ray radiation, the level of radiation is a similar amount to what you would receive from around 3 years of natural exposure from the environment.

 

What can CT scans can be used to look at?

Vital organs

CT scans allow doctors to examine internal organs such as the heart, lungs, liver, intestine and kidneys. CT scans for this area can diagnose a range of issues from pneumonia to blood clots to kidney cysts.

Soft tissue

Soft tissue includes tendons, fibrous tissue, fat, ligaments and organs.  CT scans can pick up issues in these areas such as cancerous growths, tendon and ligament injuries or ruptured blood vessels.

Head

CT scans of the brain can identify potentially life-threatening issues such as bleeding, infection, blood clots and suspected brain tumours.

Blood and bone density

CT scans for blood and bone density can help to diagnose problems with blood vessels or bone diseases including osteoporosis.

Virtual colonoscopy

A virtual colonoscopy is an alternative to an optical colonoscopy and provides improved detection of bowel cancer.
