What Is It?
CT angiogram or CTA is a non-invasive, X-ray–based diagnostic test, used to view arteries.


What Do I Do?

  • If you are diabetic, DO NOT take glucophage, metformin, glucovance, metaglib, or avandamet the day of the exam. 
  • Please let the nurse know if you have any dye allergies. 
  • You will need to remove any necklaces, earrings, and facial piercings.

What Will Happen?
You will lie on a comfortable table (usually on your back). The table will slowly move you through the opening of the unit. All you need to do is listen to the instructions of the medical personnel. During the exam you will feel the table you are lying on move slightly and you will hear only a low whirring noise. It is always important, during any test, to let the staff know immediately if you feel any discomfort. After the exam a report will be sent to your doctor who will discuss it with you.


How Long Does It Take?
The test takes approximately 30 minutes.
