Preparing for Your CT Scan

CT scan exams are a common procedure. Some of the exams do require preparation, for example, not eating for a specific length of time before your exam. Please check with your doctor or the NSMC radiology staff to find out if preparation is necessary.

We request you leave your valuables at home and make any necessary child care arrangements prior to your CT exam. If there is any possibility you may be pregnant, or if you are nursing a baby, please speak with your doctor before you schedule your appointment.
