CT Colonography (CTC)

CT Colonography (also known as “virtual colonoscopy”) is a special scan using low dose CT technology to examine the inside of the large bowel for cancers and growths called polyps.

CT Colonography may be performed for bowel related symptoms or when a colonoscopy has been unsuccessful.

Information on the preparation required for your CT Colonography can be found in “preparing for your CT Colonography” below.

The radiographer will call you in and confirm your name. You will be asked to change into a gown.

You will lie on a bed and the radiologist will complete the final steps in the preparation for the procedure. Once ready, you will move through the CT scanner twice, once lying on your back, and once lying on your stomach. The scan usually takes 20 minutes or less in total.

All CT scans are reported by our radiologists the same day, at which point the doctor who requested the procedure will receive the result electronically.

Booking and referrals are required for CT Colonography appointments. Click Here to Request an Appointment now.
