If you’ve been scheduled at our facility, we will call you to confirm your appointment a few days in advance. At this time we will go through a list of screening questions and pre appointment instructions with you, that are specific to your procedure.
These questions will ensure that it is safe for you to have a CT scan. They are also designed to make sure you are prepared for your exam, that you will know what to expect once you’ve arrived at our facility, and will also provide you with an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
Different exams will have their own sets of instructions, if you are unsure about how you should prepare please give us a call at:
Below are some general guidelines:
- If you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant, please check with your doctor before scheduling your exam.
- If you are having a CT scan WITH contrast, you will be provided with contrast smoothie to take a few hours before your exam. Follow the instructions on the side of the bottle. If you have problems with your kidney function please inform us beforehand as you may not be able to take the contrast media.
- You may NOT eat or drink 2 hours prior to your exam if your doctor has ordered a CT scan WITH contrast.
- You may eat and drink normally if your doctor has ordered a scan WITHOUT contrast.
