How
The machine is shaped like a doughnut.  You will lie on a narrow, motorized bed that slides through the opening into a tunnel.  While the bed moves into the scanner, a series of x-rays are taken at different angles to create cross-sectional images (slices) of organs, bones and soft tissues.

The radiographer will sit in a separate room and will be able to hear and see you, and you will be able to communicate via an intercom.

What
It is a painless procedure. Sometimes intravenous and oral contrast must be administered for better visualization.  Please inform the radiographer of any allergies, medical conditions and if you are pregnant.

 

Take note:
Depending on the area that will be examined, you may want to wear loose, comfortable clothing. You may be asked to change into a gown for the examination and to remove any jewelry or other metallic items from your body before the examination.
