CT scans vs X-rays
Benefits of CT Scan:
- CT scans are of much higher resolution. Compared to X-rays, they provide more detailed information to radiologists. As a result, CT is a more reliable tool in making a clear diagnosis.
- A quick procedure, CT scan relatively involves a much lower exposure to radiation. This method also provides radiologists with high-quality images that reveal the smallest of abnormalities
- Pregnancy. As the fetus is highly sensitive to radiation. Please be sure to inform the imaging center staff if you are pregnant.
- A history of a prior allergic reaction to intravenous contrast dye. This demands caution to avoid a repeat episode. An antihistamine medication is recommended before the procedure to prevent a reaction.
What involves the CT scan process?
♦ CT scans are usually performed at a hospital or imaging centre.
♦ You may be instructed not to eat or drink for a few hours before the procedure.
♦ During the procedure, you will be asked to wear the hospital gown and remove any metal objects such as jewellery.
♦ The procedure will require you to lie on a table inside a large, doughnut-shaped CT machine.
♦ As the table slowly moves inside the scanning machine multiple X-rays rotate around your body, you may hear a whirring or buzzing noise.
♦ You will be instructed to refrain from making any movement as it can blur the image. You may need to hold your breath at times.
♦ The duration of the scan depends on the part of the body being scanned. It can take anywhere from a few minutes to a half-hour. In most cases, you’ll go home the same day.
