What is CT aortogram?

A CT aortagram is a type of scan used to assess the blood supply to your upper body.

Why have I been asked to get a CT aortogram done?

A CT aortogram is performed in case of:

  • Any blockage or malformations in the arteries in the chest.

How can I prepare for the scan?

  • When you schedule your CT Aortogram scan, you will receive detailed instructions on how to prepare. For example, you may be instructed to not eat or drink anything for at least four hours before your scan begins. You may drink sips of water before your scan if required.

  • You may also take your prescribed medications prior to your scan.

  • Pregnant or lactating women should avoid a CT Aortogram .

  • It is recommended that you come with one relative to help you during the course of the scan.

  • Wear comfortable clothing and avoid jewellery or any other metal on the body.

Previous reports/scans required?

  • Serum Creatinine reports(not older than 4 weeks) are required to check for the health of your kidneys in case we need to use contrast media to get better images during the scan. The values help us decide on the type of contrast media to be used.

  • Total time – 2-3 hrs. approx.

  • Patient history/consent:  5-10 mins.

  • On table time – 30 mins.
