Diagnostic Services - CT/CAT Scans

CT machines are located in all five regional health authorities.  Ask your health care provider where you are having your scan.

What is a CT/CAT Scan?

A computed tomography (CT/CAT) scan uses X-rays to make detailed pictures of structures inside the body.  It can be used to study many parts of your body, including organs, blood vessels, bones and the spinal cord.  Sometimes, a contrast material (dye) is injected to assess blood flow and look for other problems.
