What Will Happen During & After the Scan?

During the Scan

You will be lying on a long table that slides into a doughnut shaped hole. The technologist may ask you not to swallow or to hold your breath during parts of your scan. Your CT Scan will take anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes depending on the type of scan(s) ordered by your physician.

After the scan

You can resume your normal diet and activities immediately following your CT scan. If IV contrast was used you will be instructed to continue drinking extra fluids for about 24 hours.

Your physician will share the results of your CT scan with you at your follow-up appointment or sooner by telephone.
