Planning ahead:

  • Do not eat, drink, or smoke anything from 8 p.m. on the evening before the exam.
  • Arrive at the hospital 30 minutes before your exam is scheduled. Ask the scheduler what time that is.

Bring with you when you come for your test:

  • Complete list of medications you are currently taking – name and dosage of each medication, and when you take it.
  • Written physician’s order for the test.

On the day of the test:

  • Come in through the main entrance of Mon General Hospital and to the Radiology Services registration desk, down the hallway to the right.
  • Plan to be at the hospital for one and half hours.

During the exam:

  • You will be given a substance to drink and then placed on a table for imaging.
