Taking advantage of the use of x-ray technology, CT machines produce high resolution images that provide a great deal of information for your doctor. Many CT examinations require some preparation, whether it is the removal of metallic items, fasting or some form of contrast such as a drink or an injection. For most examinations you will be lying down on a table as it moves back and forth through a “donut” shaped machine. You can easily see all the way through the machine from one side to the other. The CT technician will also be able to communicate with you at any point during your examination to ensure you are comfortable. The majority of time for most examinations will be in the preparation, the scan at the end is generally the shortest part of your visit.
