Preparing for the Examination (for adults)
We recommend avoiding coffee and physical activity for four hours before the test to keep your heart rate down.
If confined spaces cause you a lot of anxiety or nervousness, you may be able to take a sedative, which you should acquire before the test. If you are taking the test, be sure to bring someone with you, as you will not be able to drive that day. Otherwise, there are no restrictions after the test—you can resume your normal activities.
A medical prescription is required to perform this examination.
Please note that CT-Scan examinations are not covered by the Régie de l’Assurance Maladie du Québec (RAMQ). However, most group insurance plans cover the costs.
