    mura daw dun, try mo na rin tumawag sa ibang hospital to compare their price,
    gud luck!

    Both my dad and tita's doctor, one in Cardinal and the other in Metropolitan suggested De Los Santos Medical Center for CT Scans, masmura raw kasi dito compared to their respective hospitals. Depending on what kind of CT Scan you're going to have, iba iba rin ang price.

    Mag-inquire ka din sa Tokyo Healthlink. Alam ko mura lang din sila kasi supplier sila ng mga medical equipments. 772-2678 or 772-2679

    Bossing... Madami na nag-ooffer ng CT scan... kaya lang nagkakatalo rin yan sa kumukuha at nag-iinterpret (lalo na sa nag-iinterpret). Ano ba pakukunan mo?

    Para rin po siyang X-ray... pero mas high resolution kaya mas mavivisualize mo yung organs. Dito eh yung umiikot ikot yung camera para hindi lang 1 plane ang makukunan. Usually ito muna ang ginagawa dahil masyado mahal ang MRI. Pero kung may anomalyang nakita... wala, MRI din bagsak mo.

    Actually pwede rin naman po na hindi full body scan (hehe ang mahal nun). Usually area-specific lang ang kinukunan like abdominal scans.

    BR,
    Boss usually CT Scan muna... Masyado mahal kung MRI agad eh. Baka kasi makita na agad yung problema sa CT scan kaya ganun. Kung kinakailangan ng mas malinaw na visualization tsaka gagamitin yung MRI.

    BR,
    Okay na siguro yun bossing. Pwede niya naman itanong sa hospital bago pagawa yung procedure.

    Hingi lang siya ng request sa doctor na nag-utos sa kanya na magpaCT scan siya.

    Check-up? No. I don't think so. Usually ginagamit ang CT Scan kapag may suspicion ng malignancy or tissue damage na hindi mavivisualize through other means. Meron namang alternatives like the conventional X-ray and Ultrasound muna. Mahal kasi ang CT Scan... Pero syempre mas mahal pa rin ang MRI.

    @areyes,

    ewan ko kung may ganito silang benefit sa employer niya kasi reklamo sakin madalas sakit ang batok, kaya suggest ko magpa CT scan agad... mahirap na kasi pag ganuon baka bigla ka ma-brain stroke (aneurism ba yun)...

    @Doc Cass,

    as i know, you can just go to the hospital and infrom the counter for brain CT Scan , eh dapat alam na nila ang gagawin diba??

    Nako bossing. You need to have a doctor to give a request first to have a CT Scan. Hindi po basta basta pupunta lang (well, sa amin, ha?) kasi baka sayang lang bayad hindi pala makita sa CT scan yung problema. Kung aneurysm ang problema o ang pupwedeng sakit bossing, baka hindi rin makita kung CT scan lang.

    Sir, suggest ko, punta siya kahit sa Emergency Room ng kahit na anong hospital... Tapos dun siya magcomplain. Irerefer naman siya sa espesiyalista eh.

    O kaya sa Out-Patient Department ng Government Hospital kung nagtitipid... Hindi naman ganun kamahal ang magpaconsulta dun.

    Akala ko bossing may request na for CT Scan. May mga hospital kasing hindi pumapayag na walang request.

    Yun nga kasi pag punta ka pa doctor, bayad ka pa ng Consultation fee, whereas dba mas OK pa Scan ka muna, tsaka ka punta sa Doctor mo, para isang bayad na lang consultation fee...

    Paano bossing pagpunta mo sa doctor mo after mo magpaCT Scan nalaman mo na hindi na pala kailangan ng CT Scan? Sayang 5K agad. Patingin muna siya kamo. Baka high blood siya makakatulong at mapeprevent rin yung pagputok ng ugat kung bababa BP niya.

    Nako boss. Sa kakainom ba niya nahilig rin siya sa pulutang mamantika? Sabihin mo bossing hindi biro yung pananakit ng batok at malakas siya tumoma. Patingin na kamo siya at minomonitor na dapat ang BP niya.

    ako nga hindi manginginom pero fluctuating ang bp ko.

    yes, dapat may advise or recom ng doctor before xray/ctscan.. better paconsult muna. maganda sana kung covered yun ng benefits nila para less gastos.

    Tumalon yun bayaw ko sa jeep na umaandar, nabagok yun ulo nya, tapos nagsusuka na siya. So pina CT scan namin yun ulo niya, buti na lang negative yun findings, so far buhay pa rin naman siya hanggang ngayon.

    Sa pagkakaalam ko covered yun eh (Philhealth or is it Philamcare?)... Yun nga lang you have to go to their main branch pa ata to get a request or something then go to an accredited hospital for your consultation and eventually the requested tests.
