CT Information

If you’ve been referred for a CT scan at an InHealth Community Diagnostic Centre, you may be wondering what happens next. We understand that patients may be anxious about the scan and/or the process. Don’t worry, we have created lots of information here, so you can know what to expect. You will also receive this information in the post soon after your appointment is booked.

About your scan

With your appointment booked, it’s time to prepare for your scan, which is step 1 of a 3-step process. The information pack you will receive in the post will explain any pre-appointment requirements that apply to your scan type, and the time you will need to arrive at the diagnostic centre. Following your scan, your images will be studied by a consultant, and a findings report will be sent to your referrer.

You attend your CT appointment at the diagnostic centre, where a Radiographer will conduct your scan.

step 2

Reporting

A specialist Consultant will study your images and produce a written report, which is sent to your referrer.
