Lead radiologist Martin te Kloot said safety was a big part of the scanner.
"Our new CT scanner incorporates the very latest in advanced diagnostic imaging technology which essentially means less radiation is received by patients than in other modern-day scanners." Mr te Kloot said.
"This latest technology means that as a clinician, I can deliver improved diagnosis for our referrers and their patients to ensure that effective treatment plans can be put into place sooner," te Kloot said.
