How to Prepare for the Study
You should wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing for your CT exam. Metal objects can affect the image, so avoid clothing with zippers and snaps. You may be asked to remove hairpins, jewelry, eyeglasses, hearing aids and any removable dental work that could obscure the images. You also may be asked to refrain from eating anything for up to four hours before the exam. Women should always inform their doctor, scheduler, or x-ray technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant.
****You may take any necessary medications prior to your exam with a small amount of clear liquid, if your medication requires food be taken with it, please contact us prior to your exam*****
