Rapid Clinics is a leading provider of CT services across the UK. We offer CT scan services with reports from specialist consultants in 3 working days. A CT scan is a painless, non-invasive procedure which uses specialised X-ray equipment to scan for inflammation, disease, cancer or other health conditions.
A CT scan is great for viewing parts of the body difficult to reach with other procedures. These scans can view:
- Internal organs
- Soft tissue
- Blood vessels
They work effectively by sending out multiple beams of X-rays at different angles, giving a clear picture of the scanned area. Depending on the reason for the scan, it will take between 15 minutes and 1 hour.
Advantages of a CT Scan:
- A CT-scan can help detect the size, location, and shape of a tumour. This will enable the consultant to specify the correct treatment for a cancer.
- CT scans remove the need for exploratory surgeries, reducing stress and discomfort for the patient, as well as saving valuable time.
