We advise that you do not eat solid foods 2-4 hours hours prior to the exam if possible. Up to 1 hour before the examination, you are allowed to consume clear liquids and any medications.
If your CT scan requires an intravenous contrast injection, you will need to have recent laboratory studies to document normal renal function prior to your exam. Please bring the lab studies with you at the time of your appointment or ask your doctor to fax us the results. We will be happy to call for them as well if need be.
If your scan requires oral contrast, please arrive 90 minutes prior to your appointment to drink the oral contrast. Otherwise, please arrive at least 15 minutes early.
