A CT scanner has an X-ray tube and detectors that move around the body in a circular motion as you move slowly through the scanner on the scanning table.
The CT scanner collects cross-sectional images that together with a powerful computer can build three-dimensional images that allow doctors to view soft tissue, organs, bone and blood vessels that can be difficult to see on conventional X-Rays.
At Sydney CBD X-ray our Siemens CT scanner uses low dose scanning techniques with the latest software to produce the highest quality diagnostic images without exposing the patient to unnecessary radiation. Our highly trained and friendly staff will explain the procedure to you before your scan and answer any questions or concerns you may have. CT scans are fast and painless.
