The patient will usually need to undergo special preparation for these exams in order to insure a safe, high quality procedure. Specific prep instructions will be given to the patient when scheduling takes place.
Duration: Can range between 15 and 90 minutes depending on the procedure(s). Specific information will be given when a patient is being scheduled.
Note: For all X-ray procedures, please advise the technologist if you are pregnant, and/or diabetic, if you are allergic to latex, or if you are allergic to iodine, seafood, or have a previous reaction to a contrast injection.
