About CT Scan
A CT scan uses multiple X-rays taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional images (slices) of your internal organs. The X-rays are processed in a computer to produce detailed images of your bones, blood vessels, and other organs within the body.
A CT scan has many uses but it’s particularly useful for quickly examining people who require immediate medical attention, such as those who may have internal injuries from accidents or those who experience strokes or brain hemorrhages.
CT scans provide more detailed images of your body than regular X-rays.
Why would a doctor order a CT scan?
Your doctor may prescribe a CT scan to
- Quickly detect internal injuries or bleeding
- Diagnose muscle and bone disorders
- Pinpoint the location of blood clots, infections, and other tumors
- Monitor diseases such as cancer and heart, liver, or lung diseases
- Monitor the effectiveness of treatments, and
- To guide procedures such as surgeries, biopsies, and radiation therapy
How to prepare for a CT scan?
Depending on which part of your body is being scanned, you may be asked to
- Change into a hospital gown
- Remove objects with metals from your body like rings, belts, jewelry, spectacles, etc
- Refrain from eating or drinking for a few hours or more. Speak to your doctor if you require fasting
Preparing for a CT scan with contrast
Sometimes, a special dye called contrast may be used to highlight the areas of your body being examined. These contrast materials block X-rays and appears white on images. This helps emphasize blood vessels, intestines, and other structures.
Contrast materials may be given to you by
Mouth: If your stomach or esophagus is being examined, you may be asked to swallow a liquid containing the contrast material. This can taste unpleasant.
Injection: If the doctor needs to examine your blood vessels, gallbladder, urinary tract, or liver, they may administer a contrast agent through a vein in your arm.
Enema: If you need to have your intestines examined, a contrast material may be injected into your rectum to help visualize them. This procedure can cause bloating and discomfort.
Preparing your child for a CT scan
If your toddler needs a CT scan, your doctor may prescribe a sedative to help calm and still the child. Speak to your doctor on how to prepare your child for a CT scan.
What to expect during a CT scan?
CT scans are usually painless and can take just a few minutes for newer machines to scan your body or organs, but the entire procedure may take 30 minutes or longer.
During the procedure
(1) Scanner Appearance: CT scanners resemble a standing doughnut. You lie on a movable table that goes through the doughnut-shaped opening. Straps and pillows aid in positioning, with a special cradle for head scans.
(2) Scan Process: As the table moves, the X-ray tube and detectors rotate around you. Multiple images of thin body slices are captured during each rotation. Expect buzzing and whirring noises during this phase.
(3) Technologist Presence: A technologist in a separate room monitors the scan. Communication is possible through an intercom system, allowing you to stay connected.
(4) Breath Holding: To prevent image blurring, the technologist may instruct you to hold your breath at specific moments during the scan.
(5) Head Scan Detail: During head scans, a cradle holds your head steady for precise imaging. The scan process remains similar, but attention is given to minimizing head movement.
After the procedure
You can return home back to your normal routine. If you were given a contrast material, you may be asked to wait a certain amount of time before doctors can discharge you. You may be also asked to drink a lot of water or fluids to help flush out contrast material from your kidneys.

Can a child eat before a CT scan?
Yes, children can usually eat before a CT scan. However, the healthcare provider may provide specific instructions based on the type of CT scan and the use of contrast material. It’s essential to follow any fasting guidelines provided by the medical staff.
What parents should know about CT scans for children?
Parents should understand that CT scans involve radiation exposure, although modern machines use lower doses. It’s crucial to inform the medical team about allergies, medical history, and pregnancy. The benefits of the scan should outweigh the potential risks, and parents can ask questions to ensure they are well-informed.
What are the side effects of a CT scan?
Common side effects of a CT scan are generally mild and temporary. They might include allergic reactions to contrast material (rare), discomfort from holding still, or anxiety due to the scanning process. Serious side effects are very uncommon.
Is a CT scan with contrast serious?
A CT scan with contrast is generally safe and widely performed. However, there is a small risk of allergic reactions or adverse effects from the contrast material. Medical staff carefully consider the necessity of contrast and the patient’s medical history before administering it.
Does CT contrast affect kidneys?
Contrast material used in CT scans can affect the kidneys, especially in individuals with pre-existing kidney problems. The contrast can cause a temporary decline in kidney function. Adequate hydration before and after the scan can help reduce this risk.
Can contrast dye cause high creatinine?
Contrast dye can sometimes cause a temporary increase in creatinine levels, which is a marker of kidney function. This is more common in individuals with existing kidney issues. It’s important for the medical team to consider this risk when deciding to use contrast.
Why check kidney function before a CT scan?
Checking kidney function before a CT scan, especially if contrast will be used, helps determine the risk of contrast-induced nephropathy (a temporary decline in kidney function). It aids in making an informed decision about contrast administration and taking necessary precautions.
How long does a CT scan with IV contrast last?
The duration of a CT scan with IV contrast can vary. The scan itself usually takes a few minutes, but the overall process, including preparation and post-scan observations, might take around 30 to 60 minutes.
Is IV contrast CT scan safe?
In most cases, an IV contrast CT scan is safe. The benefits often outweigh the risks. Medical staff evaluate each patient’s medical history and potential allergies before administering contrast. Serious adverse reactions are rare.
Who should not get IV contrast?
Individuals with severe allergies to contrast material, a history of kidney issues, or specific medical conditions might not be suitable candidates for IV contrast. Pregnant women are usually advised to avoid contrast-enhanced scans unless absolutely necessary. The medical team will assess the risks and benefits for each individual.
