What happens before a CT scan?

ANSWER

You may get a drug that will make you feel relaxed and drowsy.

You may need to change into a hospital gown, because snaps and zippers in street clothes can interfere with the scan. You also may need to take off your watch, rings, or jewelry. It's a good idea to leave your valuables, including jewelry, at home.
