Computed Tomography

An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. It’s also known as sonography.

What is a CT?

A Computed Tomography (CT) scan combines special X-ray equipment with powerful computers to produce multiple cross-sectional images of the inside of your body.

CT images are very high resolution, generating up to 2000 images per scan. Our doctors carefully review those images and often reconstruct 3D images to aid in the report. They allow us to provide a clear and accurate diagnosis to your doctor. CT scans have many uses including detailed investigation of your lungs, body organs, and glands, and can also be used to guide injections.

Widest CT Scanner for the Best Patient Experience

The 160-slice Aquilion Lightning CT has a wide and open bore design to make
examinations easier for claustrophobic patients whilst avoiding the uncomfortable arm
positioning that is often required for narrow bore CT scanners

Investing in the latest CT image reconstruction technology

We have invested in a brand new Aquilion Lightning 160 CT scanner which utilises the
next generation in CT image reconstruction – AiCE.
AiCE is the world’s first deep learning image reconstruction technology and provides
a more confident diagnosis, by producing CT images with outstanding anatomical
resolution at low doses.
• AiCE improves the ability to detect subtle pathology
• AiCE improves the ability to resolve fine structures
• AiCE redefines ultra-low dose CT imaging and image quality

We provide improved clinical confidence with advanced technology


Automated bone-free CT angiography
SureSubtraction accurately removes bone and calcium from data, providing superior
visualisation of arteries at risk – saving time and improving clinical confidence.

Iodine Mapping maximises the data obtained from a routine multi-phase scan. The
system automatically generates robust iodine colour maps that highlight the uptake
of iodine, and enhances diagnostic capability and confidence. These maps can aid in
differentiating solid from cystic lesions, evaluating treatment effects, distinguishing
hypo-from hypervascular lesions, and establishing organ ischemia.

How much will my procedure cost?

We bulk bill all CT services for patients holding a Medicare, DVA or Pension card.
