The Istituto Radiologico Gortan in Trieste uses a multi-slice device that allows to examine all body districts with optimization of the radiation dose administered to the patient.
At the Istituto Radiologico Gortan in Trieste we perform computed tomography (CT or CAT), a method that uses X-rays.
Running the CT scan
The patient is comfortably lying on a scanning bed that runs through a short tunnel. There are no problems of claustrophobia. The duration of the examination varies in relation to the body districts to be examined, generally lasting about 15 minutes.
Precautions for CT scans
There are no absolute contraindications to the performance of a C.T. There remain contraindications related to the use of ionizing radiation and its potential biological damage to tissues. The patient must report any known allergies or any reactions that have occurred during previous investigations.
