  • CT angiography explained

    CT angiography is a procedure combining a CT scan with an injection of a contrast media to create pictures of blood vessels and tissues. You will have contrast injected through an intravenous (IV) line in your arm or hand.

  • Please advise us

    If you have had an adverse reaction to a previous contrast injection or other drugs or if you have any renal impairment. We will ask you to complete a questionnaire before the examination and sign a consent to the contrast injection if it is required for your examination.

    If you are, or may be, pregnant.

  • Preparation

    Please bring your referral, Medicare and Pension Health Care Cards with any previous imaging relating to the region being scanned.

    You will need to fast for 4 hours before the test and keep well hydrated. If you are diabetic - please see special instructions below.

  • What happens during the procedure

    You will be given a gown to wear, and then taken into the CT scan room and asked to lie down on the CT table.

    In order to administer the contrast, a cannula will be inserted into a vein with the intravenous contrast given halfway through the CT angiogram. It is normal to experience a metallic taste in the mouth, a warm sensation in the bladder and a warm flush over the body. Rest assured that these will cease after a couple of minutes.

    During the scan, you will be given instructions to keep very still and hold your breath as the images are taken.

    A CT Angiography takes approx 30 minutes to complete. We recommend you drink plenty of fluids after the scan to help remove the contrast medium from your body.

  • How long does it take

    A CT Angiography takes approx 30 minutes to complete.

  • After Your Examination

    There are no restrictions after having a CT Angiogram, however it is recommended that you have a high fluid intake for 24 hours in order to flush out the contrast from your system.

  • Your images and report

    After your examination, you will be given a copy of the most pertinent images from your study. A report will be given to you with the images, or sent directly back to your referring doctor by fax or email. PRP will store digital copies of all studies on our secure database for comparison with any future examinations.

    Please bring any previous imaging with you for comparison.

    It is important that you return to your doctor with your examination results. Whether they are normal or abnormal, your doctor needs to know promptly so that a management plan can be formulated.

  • Special precautions

    You may not be able to have the contrast injection if you have had a reaction to a previous injection, or have significant renal failure.

  • Special instructions for diabetics

    If your examination requires fasting, then book an early morning appointment and have your breakfast and diabetic medication after the examination.

    If your examination will require an intravenous injection of contrast medium, we need to know your renal function. Please bring along the results of your most recent blood test creatinine level.

  • Possible complications

    Allergic reactions to contrast material can occur but significant reactions are rare, and generally respond to adrenalin. Our staff members are equipped and trained to treat contrast reactions.
