What is a CT scan?

CT stands for computed tomography. It uses X-rays to produce a cross-sectional, or ‘slice’ image of the inside of your body.

Having a CT scan - it safe?

The amount of radiation used varies. It's more than an ordinary X-ray and is the same as the natural radiation we all get over a period of about three years, which adds slightly to the risk of getting cancer. However, please bear in mind that the risk is very small and the risk of missing a serious problem if you don’t have a CT scan is much higher.
