CT Scan

Our Genesis CT Scanner is able to generate the best possible image quality with the lowest radiation dose of any CT scanner available today. Computerised Tomography (CT) is an ultrafast scanner that allows images to be reconstructed in any plane or in 3D. CT scanning is a useful tool to help identify and diagnose a wide variety health issues.

The key features of the CT scanner are its ability in cardiac scans to achieve the best possible image quality at the lowest radiation dose of any CT scanner available. The cutting edge technology will monitor a patient’s heart rate and take the scan in the phase of the heart beat which allows for the heart to be as still as possible, achieving unparalleled image quality and resolution. Should a patient’s heart have an abnormal rhythm the scanner will automatically wait until the next normal heart beat before taking the images, allowing for the lowest possible radiation dose – even on complex patients.

The Genesis CT Scanner possesses ground breaking collimation technology, which allows the scanner to be used in a similar way to a conventional X-ray machine. The laser area finder allows Radiographers to set up for an orthopaedic scan without the patient lying down on the table, this allows for a faster and more relaxed patient experience.  The area finder also enables a reduction in radiation dose as the traditional two ‘scanograms’ are not required with this technique.

The unique Toshiba flared gantry design with a large 78cm aperture, means that even claustrophobic patients are more likely to be able to be scanned, as the patient experience is one of spaciousness. With the Toshiba ‘Lateral Assist’ table top being able to move from side to side, the patient experience is further enhanced as clinicians no longer need to manually handle the patient in to position as much as previously.

If you have health insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa Health, Aviva), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation before any treatment, and in most cases you will also require a referral letter from your GP.

If you are not registered with a GP, we have an in-house private GP practice you can use. Alternatively, we can suggest the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstances.

*Please note – for investigations such as X-rays and MRIs, a referral will be required. However, we may be able to arrange this for you through our on-site private GP.
