Computed Tomography (CT Scan)
The CMH CT Scan has been providing service to Campbellford and surrounding area since January 19, 2010. Computed Tomography is the process of creating cross-sectional images of any part of the body. For CT, a patient is scanned by an X-ray tube rotating about the body part being examined. The computer analyzes the data and displays it as a series of cross-sectional images. The images can be displayed in multiple planes as well as 3-dimensional reconstructions. Some examinations require intravenous injection of contrast media (X-ray dye) to enhance the visualization of a specific organ; some exams require oral or rectal contrast. If this is required, the patient will be informed when the appointment is booked.
To book a CT scan, the ordering physician sends a requisition directly to the CT department. After the order is reviewed and coded by a radiologist, then you will be contacted with an appointment. This process can take up to 5 days.
Important: If you think you may be pregnant, please inform the technologist before your examination starts.
