What is a CT ?
Computed tomography (CT) uses sophisticated x-ray technology to take images of parts of the body in very fine slices. The fine detail allows accurate diagnosis of a variety of illnesses and injuries. In Solomon Islands, we have a very sophisticated CT machine, that can obtain very thin slices of 0.6 mm thick to construct different planes of your body. This allows the radiologist to view detail structures that make up the body and make detailed report that helps doctors to gain a detail and accurate understanding of what is in your body, to aid them in providing timely and appropriate treatments.
In the past, Solomon Islanders who needed to do a CT scan had to travel overseas. Now, we have a CT scanner at the NRH, where you can access this service.
You can get a CT scan at NRH by using the government health system or by going through the local private medical system where a referral is made to do the scan.
If you choose to use the private system, you can attend the Frontier Radiology Health Centre, where there is a highly experienced radiologist to assist you and refer you for a scan.
At the Frontier Radiology Health Centre, we offer CT services where you can consult our experienced radiologist to assist and guide you, in understanding the benefits and the risks of doing a CT examination. The CT services we currently offer are:
• Consultations with radiologist
