CT stands for Computerised Tomography. A CT scan takes a series of pictures of any part of your body using x-rays to produce images that show cross-sections or slices of your body. A Radiographer (a University-trained health professional who works in Radiology to produce diagnostic images using a variety of different modalities) will perform your scan and may be assisted by an RDA (Radiology Department assistant). The data produced from the scanner is processed by a powerful computer to create the images and can be viewed on a screen to show very detailed images of the inside of your body.
These images are interpreted by a Radiologist (a specialist X-Ray Consultant who is trained to interpret diagnostic images) to provide a report for your referring Clinician.
