Computed Tomography

CT ScanComputed tomography (CT) scanning, sometimes called CAT scanning, is a noninvasive, painless X-ray procedure that obtains cross-sectional images of body parts that cannot be seen on a standard X-ray. CT scans may also be used to assist physicians during biopsies, typically those of the lungs, liver, kidney or bones.

Preparing for a CT Scan at Morristown Medical Center

  • Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing; you may be given a gown to wear during the procedure.
  • Leave metal objects, including jewelry, eyeglasses, dentures and hairpins, at home or remove them prior to your exam; you may also be asked to remove hearing aids.
  • Do not to eat or drink for several hours before the exam, especially if a contrast material will be used.
  • Women should inform their physician and the CT technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant or are breast feeding.
  • To avoid delays, remember to bring a copy of your prescription.

If you are having a CT interventional procedure, a radiology nurse will call you prior to your appointment to provide you with instructions and answer all of your questions.
