What to Expect During the Procedure
One of our nationally certified Computed Tomography (CT) technologists will escort
you to the table and ask you to lie down on your back. For this procedure you will
be asked to drink oral contrast (called barium) before the procedure. You may also receive IV contrast. Once on the table your
procedure may take between 10-30 minutes.
How Should I Prepare?
One of our representatives will call to confirm your appointment, go over some health
questions and will also remind you of your exam preparation requirements:
No food or drink by mouth (NPO) 6 hours prior to this procedure.
Please notify our staff with any special needs.
What to Expect After the Procedure
We suggest plenty of clear liquids for the next 24 hours. Reports will be sent to your physician within 5 business days.
Contact your physician for any information pertaining to the findings.
