Your doctor has requested that you have a C.T. scan of your spine to visualize any abnormalities. Please follow these simple instructions so that we may best serve you.
- There is no prep for this examination.
- Report to Radiology approximately 15 minutes before your scheduled time if you have not been contacted by the Admitting Office.
- You will be positioned on the scan table. It is important that you do not move because even the slightest movement can blur the picture and result in the need for repeat scans.
- The examination usually takes from 20 – 40 minutes. This includes preparation, actual scanning time and time for the technologists to check the images.
