Computer Tomography Scan

Computer Tomography (CT) is a specialised examination using a combination of x-rays and computer technology to produce cross-sectional images of the head and spine, allowing for better diagnosis.

The Department operates a 24-hour CT service to cater to both inpatients and outpatients. Currently, there are two CT scanners: both are multi-slice scanners and are capable of producing detailed 3D reconstruction of complex cranial abnormalities and facial. Accurate rendering of the bony structures of the head and spine can now be achieved in minutes, with advanced processing protocols. For patients with conditions that require biopsies, CT guidance can be used to allow greater accuracy in obtaining tissue samples.
