CT Patient Information and Consent Form
|Contrast Material:||Rarely required|
- Inflammation of the paranasal sinuses
- Preparation for dental implantation
- Inflammatory, cystic or tumor-related changes in the jaw
Patients are requested to remove all clothing from the area be examined and and any metal objects such as jewelry or piercings.
Patients lie face-up on a sliding table which moves slowly through the wide circular opening of the CT scanner during the procedure. The area to be examined is always in the middle of this opening.
If intravenous contrast material needs to be injected for your CT procedure examination, we insert a small soft plastic tube (Venflon) - which serves to access the vein - before the procedure. The contrast material itself is injected painlessly through an injector. This eliminates the risk of movement having a negative effect on the procedure. If you suffer from thyroid disease, impaired kidney function or diabetes, please inform us at the time of your registration.
