SPECT-CT scan

SPECT-CT is where two different types of scans are taken and the images or pictures from each are fused or merged together. This provides more precise information about how different parts of the body function and helps to identify any problems.

Three hours before the scan you will need to have an injection of a very small amount of a radioactive tracer. The actual scan will take about an hour to two hours.

The Isotope SPECT-CT is done at the Wellington Hospital by a highly experienced team of Radiologists and Nuclear Medicine Physicians, who will contact you before your examination.

After your consultation at The Spine Surgery London, we will arrange your scan and inform you of any preparations you may need to take.
