The SPECT/CT scan service allows the doctor to analyse the function of the internal organs. It is a type of nuclear imaging test that uses a radioactive substance and a special camera to create 3D pictures. Just like a PET/CT, it combines images from a SPECT scanner and a CT Scanner to provide precise information about how different body parts work to identify problems more clearly.
Diseases Diagnosed by SPECT/CT
The SPECT/CT at KUTRRH diagnoses various medical conditions such as:
- Bone disorders

- Compliments imaging findings on MRI and/or CT
SPECT Scan Cost
KUTRRH strives to make the SPECT services as accessible & affordable as possible. As such, we have collaborated with NHIF for the pre-authorization of approved rates to be done at KUTRRH. The service can also be accessed through private insurance schemes.
Routine reports are available for collection between 2 pm – 4 pm, Monday – Friday. The SPECT/CT representative images and a DVD (containing a soft copy of the images) are be provided as soon as the scan is completed. All reports are released within 48 hours (about 2 days). Special circumstances may warrant same-day report issuance.
