CT scan

Prime Health gives you fast access to the latest CT expertise and technology so you can get diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible. The experience is built around your needs and your life.


At Prime Health we understand that if you need a CT scan, you want it quickly and at a time convenient to you. You also want reassurance that the quality of the CT scan is high and that the report produced will provide your health specialist with the information they need to get your treatment underway and you back on the road to recovery, fast.

We provide a first-class diagnostic service and have a huge amount of experience in delivering high-quality CT scans which are interpreted and reported by highly experienced specialist radiologists.

At our centres, we use the latest CT technology to efficiently investigate and identify potential bone and soft tissue injuries or conditions.

Appointments for a private CT scan at Prime Health are available at short notice and reports are usually turned around within 24-48 hours.

We offer CT scans to people with private medical insurance or those who simply wish to pay directly for the convenience of being seen quickly and efficiently.

So, what is a CT scan?

Computerised Tomography or CT is a special type of X-ray which differs from standard X-rays. The movable table passes through the opening of the scanner whilst the X-rays are being taken. The X-rays pass through the body and are detected by sensors on the other side of the machine. The images or pictures produced are cross-sections, like ‘thin slices’ of the body.

CT is excellent in showing soft tissue, air, fluid, bone, vessels and all other internal structures of the body, allowing your doctor to identify any problems.

You may have concerns or questions about having a CT scan at Prime Health and we have produced a list of Frequently Asked Questions which we hope you will find useful and will help you feel confident and comfortable. They aren’t designed to replace an informed discussion with your clinician before your appointment. However, we will be able to answer any questions or concerns about your scan when you arrive for your appointment.
