Ct Scan Question


Recommended Posts

Just had one 2 weeks ago. It was scheduled after my appt. with the doctor. I hadn't known about it ahead of time. It was scheduled for 1:00 PM. The research asst. told me I couldn't eat for 4 hours. That worked out since I had only a piece of fruit just before 9. Not sure what would have happened if I had eaten anything later than that. I know what you mean about not eating. Sometimes the way the scans are scheduled, I must wait until mid afternoon.

Good luck, Heather!

I do think it depends on whether or not they do the abdomin and whether or not they use contrast...I could be wrong but I remember a ct without contrast happening in the middle of the day and they didn't care if I ate or not and then another one with contrast where I was told not to eat.

Also, ct of the abdomin makes sense to me that they would want to get that on an empty stomach....
