CT scan (CAT scan)

CT scans (computer tomography scans) provide a detailed image of organs and body parts using X-rays.

Your child lies on a table that slowly slides through the round opening of the scanning device. Each time the table moves up a bit, a series of photos is taken. Your child must lie still for a while. A vacuum mattress can help keep your child comfortable. A regular CT scan takes about 10 minutes, a CT scan with contrast dye takes 20-30 minutes and a CT scan with a puncture takes about an hour.

More information on this is provided in the following information letters (please note these are currently only available in Dutch):

  1. CT scan without contrast dye
  2. CT scan with contrast dye
  3. CT scan with puncture under sedation
