My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Overview

CT scan is a very common medical procedure that is used to identify injuries and diseases.CT stands for Computed Tomography and is comprised of numerous X-ray photographs compiled together in order to give a detailed picture of one’s body or body part. CT scan is one of the main techniques to identify tumors and injuries, but it is not a recommended procedure for healthy patients just to look for undiagnosed medical conditions. Usually, the CT scan with contrast is performed to recognize better the anomalies. The most common types of CT scan are: 
• Abdominal CT scan 
• Heart CT scan • CT scan of the brain

Preparation

Before the procedure, you should inform your doctor about your medical conditions as well as the allergies you are suffering from(usually the CT scan with contrast is performed – a dye may cause allergy). Before the CT scan, you need to fast for several hours so that a dye can be used to improve the quality of the CT. Lastly, before entering the CT scanner, you need to take away all the metal objects in your body, such as jewelry. During the procedure, wearing a gown might be required.

How It Is Performed

CT scan procedure is a very short medical procedure. Patients would be lying on the CT scanner’s examination table as the dye is given to them either in the form of a pill or injection (unless the patient is allergic to the dye). Sedatives would be given to the patients who experience anxiety or those who have trouble staying still, including younger children. After that, the patient needs to stay still as the CT scan is being performed. When the procedure is completed, the patient can leave the hospital.

Recovery

CT scan procedure does not require a recovery period. After the procedure, you can leave the hospital and continue your daily routine.

Risks

Even though the CT scan machine involves a small dose of radiation, there is no enough proof for stating that it causes any complications regarding the radiation. However, it is not suggested for pregnant women to have a CT scan.Some people may have an allergy to the dye used in a CAT scan, but this is usually ruled out before the procedure.

Side Effects

CT scan procedure has no known side effects. It is thought to be a very safe medical procedure.

Success Rates

CT scan is a very common medical procedure because of its benefits like identifying tumors in addition to injuries caused by accidents

Before And After

Because of the CT scan, doctors can identify the medical problems patients are suffering from, and they can come up with a treatment plan accordingly.
