CT scans offered by InHealth

A CT scan is a scan that takes X-ray images which a computer then puts together. The scan is painless and can take pictures of your body from different angles, allowing doctors to see more detailed images of the parts of the body being scanned.


CT scans are usually fast and stress free and can take between five seconds, up to an hour depending on the scan being performed. Sometimes, you might be asked to take a contrast agent which can either be drunk or injected. This provides the doctor with an enhanced image to give a clearer picture of your condition.


Patients often have questions about their scans and what to expect. Some people are worried about claustrophobia, however a CT scanner is open plan and the scan can be performed quickly, so you do not need to worry. Additionally, people worry about the radiation that they will be exposed to.


InHealth follows the guidelines that have been set out by the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (IRMER) 2000, and keeps the radiation levels to the minimum where possible.  You will only be referred by clinician if the benefits of having the scan to identify your problem outweigh the risks of being exposed to the radiation dose.

Arranging a private CT scan with InHealth

There are two types of ways to pay if you are not accessing the InHealth CT scans through the NHS:


  • If you have medical insurance, it is essential to call your insurer to make sure that they will cover the cost of your scan beforehand.
  • If you are paying for the scan yourself and book an appointment, you will need to make a payment at the time of booking.

For patients who are self-paying, you will need to have a referral form completed from your doctor or other health professional on your behalf.


You can find out more information about self-referrals and payment options for private patients on the InHealth website. As well as, what to do before your CT scan appointment and what happens during your appointment.

You can call to confirm that they have received your report before you arrange an appointment with your doctor. InHealth will contact you if further test or investigations are required. The radiographer is not able to give you the result at your test.
