After the CT Scan Performed by Hill Medical

Are there any side effects or risks to a CT study?

The benefit of an accurate diagnosis far outweighs the risk. While CT does expose patients to radiation, it is equivalent to the amount of natural radiation we receive annually. Patients rarely have serious allergic reactions to the contrast medium used during a CT scan, but nursing mothers should wait for 24 hours before breast-feeding. If there is any chance you are pregnant you should let our technician know.

Will I need additional tests after a CT exam?

While the answer will depend on the reason your doctor ordered your CT exam, we frequently perform multiple tests on patients to provide the physician with enough information to make an accurate diagnosis.

When will I get the CT scan results and how?

In general, results are available to your referring physician within 24 hours. With our new secure online web viewer, your physician can have instant access to your results! For a nominal fee and a service to our patients, you may also request a CD of your results from the Huntington-Hill Imaging Center, Inc.
