How does it work?

CT utilises low levels of radiation to produce detailed images of the body that are used to diagnose and treat disease.  Images are acquired by an array of detectors that spin around the body, producing cross sectional images similar to a finely sliced loaf of bread.  CT data has the ability to be manipulated into several different planes and volumes to help aid diagnosis.  Scan times are generally fast and imaging staff are always available to answer any questions you may have during your examination.
