Computerised Tomography (CT)

Computerised Tomography (CT)

CT stands for Computerised Tomography and uses X-rays to produce thin cross-sectional images (‘slices’) of the body.  At present we have two CT scanners which are both Siemens X-cite CT Scanners, one with radiotherapy planning capabilities.

The department currently undertakes over 15,700 CT examinations per year, providing a wide variety of scans. Standard, routine and trauma CT scans are the mainstay, but the team also provides regular cardiac, orthopaedic and virtual colonography scans (images of the bowel) as well as scans for interventional procedures such as biopsies, with weekly specialist lists.
