A CT scan is painless and fast. During the test, the patient is required to lie still on the imaging bed, which is then moved into the ring-shaped scanner to take the images.
Some tests require that an injection of contrast be given.
All of our technologists are registered with the College of Medical Radiation and Imaging Technologists of Ontario.
