CT Scan

CT Scan at Ashtead Hospital

What is a CT scan?

CT is a specialised X-Ray examination that uses a scanner (a sophisticated X-Ray machine) to rotate around the patient to produce a cross-sectional (tomogram) image. A major advantage of CT is its ability to image soft tissue, air, fluid, bone and blood vessels all at the same time. 

A CT scanner provides more in-depth images than conventional X-rays as it uses a computer to produce cross-sections and sometimes 3-D images of the body, whereas an X-ray takes pictures in one plane only.
