Computed Tomography Services at Flinders Medical Centre
The Computed Tomography (CT) section is one of seven specialised units, which form the Division of Medical Imaging at Flinders Medical Centre (FMC). The section provides a full range of CT services for patients throughout the hospital, both inpatients and outpatients. General practitioners and specialist referrals are welcome.
The section performs the full range of procedures incorporating both conventional and interventional CT procedures using latest technology multislice CT scanners.
Patients are required to lie on a table in the centre of the scanner while the procedure is undertaken. Sometimes an injection of contrast media into a vein is required to assist with the visualisation of certain body parts. As this procedure utilises ionising radiation (x-rays) your doctor should discuss any risks associated with this procedure.
All patients must have a referral letter from a medical practitioner before a booking can be made.
