CT Scan Preparation

Drink plenty of fluids in the 24 hours before your exam. If your exam includes contrast, do not eat anything for four hours before your exam.

Avoid strenuous activity 24 hours in advance of your study.

Medications may be taken with a small amount of water.

If your exam includes oral contrast, you must drink it 2 hours before your exam. When you arrive for the exam you will be given another cup to drink. Please call our offices if you have a history of contrast reactions/allergies.
