What will my procedure be like ?

You will be asked to change into a hospital gown. A skilled nurse will insert an IV Cannula in your arm, as well as attach cardiac monitoring leads to your chest. You may be given medication to help lower your heart rate for this examination.
You will lie on a scan table that slides slowly into a large circular opening in the scanning machine and relax watching the Plasma TV above. The CT staff will be observing you and instructing from the control area, through Speakers inside the scanner. The technologist will be watching you at all times and be in constant communication.

The CT staff will take initial scans to help define the area to be imaged and to asses if there any calcium deposits in your heart. If there is too much Calcium deposits that may not allow doctors to see inside your arteries and it may not be possible to do this scan.
During Scanning, you will be asked to hold your breath and you will receive an injection of contrast media through the IV to " highlight" the coronary arteries. As the contrast is injected, it may feel warm sensation all your body. This is a normal occurence and will pass quickly.

The scanner will make a whirring sound as it begins to rotate around you. Low - dosage X-rays are absorbed by the body's tissues, are detected by the scanner and transmitted to the computer, which transforms the information into an images to be interpreted by the Radiologists and Cardiologists.
It is important that you remain very still during the procedure. You may be asked to wait a short time while the images are reviewed to determine if more are needed.
Please be on time and allow at least one hour for your procedure. The amount of time it takes to complete your exam depends on your heart rate.

After the Procedure.

You will be asked to wait in the lobby and the IV canulla will be removed after half an hour. You may resume your normal diet and activities immediately following your procedure. Do drink extra water to help flush the IV contrast from your body. This generally takes 24hours.

How do I obtain my results?

A panel of Cardiologists and Radiologists will review and interpret your test and share them with your physician. If you wish you can consult the cardiologist available in the hospital for further clarifications collect your hard copies, color printouts later.
