CT of Neck
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.
If your procedure requires IV contrast you will be asked to sign an informed consent form, once the consent is signed, an IV will be started before you
are taken into the CT scanner for your procedure. Our CT procedures usually take between 10-20 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) 2 hours prior to this procedure.
Please notify our staff with any special needs.
What to Expect After the Procedure
If you received IV contrast then 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 pretaining to the findings.
