Toyota driver Jose Mario Lopez has been given the all-clear after his accident in Sunday's World Endurance Championship opener at Silverstone.
The Argentinian was taken to hospital in nearby Northampton after the shunt in the #7 Toyota TS050 HYBRID and released after tests.
The scans were undertaken because the accident at Copse in the fourth hour of the race triggered the so-called 'medical light' in the car.
Lopez went straight on after putting a wheel on the wet kerb under braking while running fourth in the car he shares with Kamui Kobayashi and Mike Conway.
He was able to drive the car back to the pits after it had been hoisted out of the gravel.
The car underwent repairs and returned to the race to finish in 23rd position, which gained it fourth-place manufacturer points in LMP1.
