  • Do not eat or drink for 3 hours prior to arriving for your exam. 

  • Please wear comfortable clothing and avoid metal or jewelry in the area of interest.  If needed, cotton scrubs will be available for you to wear. 

  • Allow about 30 minutes for most examinations. 

  • Some CT exams require oral contrast. In this case, you will need to arrive 90-minutes prior to drink the provided oral contrast. A patient representative will let you know if this is necessary for your examination.
