- Unmatched Diagnostic Clarity: The high-resolution CT imaging we offer penetrates deeper than standard imaging techniques, producing clear, detailed visuals of organs, bones, and soft tissues.
- Versatility in Medical Diagnosis: From detecting cancerous growths and infections to observing brain activity and spinal injuries, CT Scans are versatile diagnostic tools that serve myriad medical purposes.
- Non-Invasive Technique: Unlike some medical procedures, CT Scans offer a non-invasive way to view the body’s interior, making it a preferred choice for many.
- Quick & Efficient: Our state-of-the-art CT Scan service delivers fast results. From preparation to conclusion, the process is streamlined, ensuring patients spend minimal time during the procedure.
- Aids in Treatment Planning: Beyond diagnosis, CT Scans are crucial in treatment planning, allowing medical professionals to map out precise treatment strategies based on the scan’s insights.
RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH CT SCANS
- Radiation Exposure: While CT Scans provide invaluable medical insights, they do expose patients to ionising radiation. However, at TIC IMAGING, our reduced radiation dose technology ensures the exposure is minimised without compromising image quality.
- Allergic Reactions: Some CT Scans require contrast dye to enhance image clarity. Rarely, this dye might trigger allergic reactions in certain individuals.
- Sedation Concerns: In specific scenarios, patients might need sedation, which carries its own set of risks. Though rare, it’s vital to discuss any sedation concerns with the radiologist beforehand.
- Potential Pregnancy Risks: If you’re pregnant or suspect you might be, inform your healthcare provider. Radiation, even minimal, may not be suitable for pregnant women, and alternative imaging methods may be considered.
- Overall Safety: It’s essential to understand that while there are risks associated with CT Scans, the benefits often outweigh the potential dangers. Decisions to undertake a CT Scan are typically based on a comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s health, needs, and the diagnostic value of the scan. Always ensure open communication with your healthcare provider to understand the complete picture.

Frequently Asked Questions
A CT Scan, or Computed Tomography Scan, uses advanced X-ray technology paired with computer processing to produce detailed images of internal structures, aiding in medical diagnostics.
CT Scans can detect and monitor various conditions, ranging from tumours, infections to abnormalities in organs. It provides a comprehensive internal view, essential for accurate medical evaluations.
Patients lie on a table that slides into the scanning machine, capturing images from various angles. These images are then processed to produce a three-dimensional view of the scanned area.
While CT Scans involve exposure to radiation, TIC IMAGING uses reduced radiation dose technology, prioritising patient safety without compromising image quality.
Preparation can vary based on the scan’s focus. Typically, you might be advised to refrain from eating or drinking for a certain duration before the scan. Always inform your doctor about allergies, medications, or if you’re pregnant.
You’ll be required to lie still, occasionally holding your breath. The scan is painless and can range from a few minutes to an hour, based on the scan type.
Post scan, our radiologists review the images. You’ll be provided with detailed feedback, guiding any further medical steps or treatments.
