CT scanner

Trauma Calls/ED Patients

These patients are scanned in the ED scanner, which is directly adjacent to resus.

ACCU / Ward Patients

In hours in-patients are generally scanned in the scanners on the 1st floor in the radiology department. It is not entirely unusual to have to wait 5-10 minutes for a porter post scan, in which case you can park the patient and yourself in the CT / MRI anaesthetic room which has wall oxygen to plug into. Out of hours (generally after 17:00), most scans take place in the ED scanner as described above.
