Cerebral computed tomography

Cerebral Tomodensiometry is an examination allowing the reconstitution of images of your brain in the form of fine axial sections in 2D or 3D


Why can my doctor prescribe this type of examination? 

There are various reasons:

 - a cerebrovascular accident (CVA)
- transient ischemic attack (TIA)
- damage to the base of the skull and cranial nerves
- epileptic seizure
- acute and chronic headaches
- head trauma
- suspected brain tumour
- orbital trauma (eye injuries)
- central nervous system problems

The procedure of the exam

Here is the procedure, we will ask you :

remove your jewelry and any metal objects that could affect the quality of the images

lie down comfortably on a table and remain still. The table will slide into the CT machine

hold your breath for a few seconds to perform the procedure. Please note that we will capture the images very quickly to minimize the radiation dose you will receive.

Depending on the type of examination prescribed by your health care professional, you may be injected with a contrast agent. The list of these agents will be indicated to you when you make your appointment. If you think you may be allergic, please inform the technologist.

In order to be able to organize your visit, you should know that the total duration of your visit may vary between 30 and 60 minutes, even though the exam itself will only last between 10 and 25 minutes.

A medial order is required to perform this examination.
