North Bristol NHS Trust have worked incredibly hard to reduce their waiting lists for a CT scan to as little as 6-8 weeks. However, for some patients that wait may still be too long if they are particularly anxious and there will always be those who will seek a quicker diagnosis in order to progress with their treatment.

A CT scan can help give patients a diagnosis to many common complaints, including headaches, tingling in limbs, painful necks or those recurrent kidney infections that can indicate kidney stones. They will also provide reassurance that patients’ high cholesterol and family history of heart disease isn't accompanied by a high calcium score.
