You have probably found some instances where conventional radiography is just not enough to be confident with a diagnosis. Often these cases get referred because the facilities are not available in the practice.
Why choose CT?
Computed Tomography or CT is a clinical imaging procedure which uses X-rays to produce a cross-sectional, or ‘slice’ image of the inside of the body. The process can show bones, as well as surrounding soft tissues such as muscle and blood vessels with great clarity.
CT imaging produces a volume of data which can be manipulated electronically to allow reformatting in multiple planes.
Our CT systems are able to scan large areas of the body in one continuous operation quickly and can deliver large numbers of images to aid in the diagnosis of many conditions, including neoplasm, infectious disease, trauma and musculoskeletal disorders.
- Images in multiple planes
- Images of the highest quality and clarity
- Safe, affordable and readily accessible
- Super diagnostic tool with wide range of applications:
– Osseus disease
Here at Haygate, we have a purpose-built surgery with its own car park, large enough to accommodate the vehicle and have the power supply required. This was the reason we decided to partner with Burgess Diagnostics to bring CT capability. We would like to offer you the opportunity to share access to this valuable imaging modality.
Each vehicle is staffed by an experienced radiographer and scans will be forwarded electronically to a RCVS specialist for interpretation if requested. Each vehicle is also equipped with anaesthetic and monitoring equipment. Patients are given sedation by us in practice and transferred to the vehicle
for scanning. We will monitor the sedation during the procedure and transfer your patient back to the practice for recovery.
This referral would be on a scan only basis. We would not discuss possible diagnoses or treatment with your clients unless you specifically request us to.
