CT Abdomen Without Contrast

  • General CT Preparation:
    • Please have only a clear liquid diet for 4 hours prior to exam.  Liquids include clear juices such as apple, cranberry & grape, clear soups, jello, coffee or tea.  No milk products or carbonated beverages should be consumed.  If this is an urgent exam, please do not have anything to eat or drink for 2 hours prior.
    • The technician will ask you to remove clothing and metal objects which may compromise the quality of your CT. You will be provided with a private locked dressing room to store these items.
    • Please contact our office prior to your imaging if you have a metal prosthesis in the area being imaged.
    • We do not allow music during the exam as the technologist may need to give you breathing instructions and talk to you through exam.
