FAQs for CTs
What do I bring? You’ll need your insurance information, the prescription for the CT from your doctor (a phone order from your doctor is acceptable, too), and a referral if your insurance requires it.
How do I prepare? If you are over 65, or if you have diabetes or renal disease, you’ll need to have a BUN/Creatinine blood test first.
For some procedures, you can’t eat past midnight prior to the procedure. We’ll give you specific instructions when you schedule with us.
What if I’m pregnant? When scheduling your appointment, you must alert us if you are pregnant, or even if you think you may be pregnant.
Can I take my medication? It depends on the procedure you’re having done. We will give you full instructions when you schedule with us.
Do I have any allergies? Please be sure to inform the scheduler as certain allergies may require you to be pre-medicated.
