Patient Information

What to expect from our mobile service

The Mobile Imaging unit is a modern, fully equipped diagnostic unit designed and built for CT and PET-CT scans. With state-of-the-art technology and professionals with unparalleled expertise, you’re in safe hands.

Through excellent utilisation of space, once inside, it is much like any other clinical environment. Once parked, the mobile unit deploys its self-levelling hydraulic ram stabilisers, and at the touch of a button, the sides of the trailer unit expand outwards, doubling its width. While power is sourced from a nearby building (usually the local hospital or medical centre), the onboard UPS provides additional emergency power autonomy.

What to expect during your scans

Our mobile facility is equipped to conduct a range of scanning procedures. The specific scan you require, either a CT scan or a PET-CT scan, is dependent upon the data required by your medical team.

Relax, you’re in good hands. We’ll take care of you every step of the way so you are well prepared, ready, and understand everything you need and/or want to know about the procedure. To make things easy for you, we’ve prepared the information below as a general guide for your scan.

CT Scan

A CT (computed tomography) scan is a medical imaging procedure that uses rotating X-rays to create cross-sectional, 3D images of any body part. 


FDG (fluorodeoxyglucose) is the most common radioactive glucose used to identify a wide range of cancers throughout the body during a PET-CT scan. 


For prostate cancer, a specific radioactive tracer called PSMA (prostate-specific membrane antigen) is used.
