CT (Computed Tomography)

A CT (computed tomography) scan is a medical imaging technique that combines X-rays and computer technology to create detailed cross-sectional images of the body. Your doctor may recommend a CT scan to diagnose or monitor various medical conditions, such as injuries, tumors, or infections.
Prime Medical offers a variety of CT scans, including head CT, chest CT, abdominal CT, and more, to address different medical needs.
The preparation for a CT scan depends on the type of scan you are having. In some cases, you may need to fast for a few hours or avoid certain medications. Our doctors will provide specific instructions.
CT scans are considered safe when performed by our trained professionals. The amount of radiation used is carefully controlled, and the benefits of an accurate diagnosis often outweigh the minimal risks.
During the procedure, you will lie on an examination table that moves through a doughnut-shaped machine. X-rays are taken from various angles, and a computer processes the images. It’s a painless and relatively quick process.
CT scans are generally painless. You may need to remain still during the scan, and some people might feel mild discomfort from the positioning.
The duration of a CT scan can vary depending on the type of exam, but most scans are completed within a few minutes.

This will depend on which service you paid for, whether after 4 working hours, after 1 business day or after 2 business days. The report will then be sent to the person or persons you requested at the time you registered for the scan.

Yes, you can request a copy of your CT scan images and results for your records. Contact our office for assistance in obtaining copies. There may be additional charges for disc copies.
