Detailed 2D and 3D images of your organs, blood vessels and bones

About

CT scans use X-rays to take detailed 2D and 3D images of inside your body. They diagnose and monitor many conditions including cancer, strokes and fractures, and they're used to investigate a wide range of symptoms. We invest in the latest CT scanning equipment which means we're able to carry out specialist CT scan procedures. A CT scanner is a ring-shaped machine filled with X-ray tubes. As you lie on a bed which passes through the middle of the scanner, it rotates and takes X-rays of your body. These are fed to a computer which creates 2D images (also known as slices). The 2D images can be stacked to create 3D images for a radiographer to analyse.
