CT scans are usually performed at a hospital or imaging center. You might be instructed not to eat or drink for a few hours before the procedure. During the procedure you will be asked to wear the hospital gown and remove any metal objects such as jewelry. The procedure will require you to lie on a table inside a large, doughnut-shaped CT machine. As the table slowly moves inside the scanning machine multiple X-rays rotate around your body, you may also hear a whirring or buzzing noise. You will be instructed to refrain from making any movement as it can blur the image. You may need to hold your breath at times.
Duration of the scan depends on the part of body being scanned. It can take anywhere from a few minutes to a half-hour. In most cases, you’ll go home the same day.
