Computed Tomography

How to Prepare?

Metal objects such as jewelry, eyeglasses and hair clips should be removed prior to the procedure, along with hearing aids and removable dental work (Items to be removed according to the scanned area, no need to remove items from the whole body).

Regular CT Scan:

No preparation is required.

CT Scan with Contrast:

Do not eat or drink anything for six (6) hours prior to a CT with contrast examination. Patient needs to bring a recent kidney function test (Creatinine) to make sure the kidney function is sufficient to excrete the contrast.

Note: Patients with renal dialysis should schedule their dialysis appointment right after the CT with contrast exam.
