CT Patient Information and Consent Form
|Contrast Material:||Required for certain procedures|
- Circulatory disorders
- Post-traumatic changes

Patients are requested to uncover the body area to be examined and remove metal objects such as jewelry or piercings.
Patients lie face-up on the sliding CT 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 is needed for your CT examination, we insert a small, soft plastic tube (Venflon) - which serves to access the vein - before the examination. 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 about at the time of your registration
