Computed Tomography (CT) is a series of images that are reconstructed by a computer into cross-sectional views. This gives us an incredibly detailed view of the inside structure of your body.
One way to think of it is of taking slices through a loaf of bread. When you take slices from your loaf of bread, you are able to see much more detail about the structures that make up the loaf. It is likely that this is why your doctor has chosen this test.
South West Radiology is the FIRST and ONLY Diagnostic Medical Imaging Provider (private) in NSW to install the world's first and only detector based Spectral CT Scanner.
This allows us to provide our patients with faster diagnosis and the lowest possible radiation dose for all of our CT scans.
