What to Expect
Before your examination begins, a CT technologist will ask you a few medical questions, explain your procedure and assist you into the CT examination room. You will be asked to lie on a padded table, which will move into the scanner opening for the examination.
Contrast helps to illuminate disease and may be administered intravenously.
What is Contrast?
A special dye called contrast material is needed for certain procedures. The contrast material blocks X-rays and appears white on images, which can help emphasize blood vessels, intestines or other structures. This can be something that you are asked to drink before your scan, or something that is given through a vein in your arm or inserted into your rectum.
Although rare, the contrast material can cause medical problems or allergic reactions. Most reactions are mild and result in a rash or itchiness. Tell your doctor if you've ever had a reaction to contrast material.
