PREPARING FOR YOUR DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING APPOINTMENT
Any medical procedure can be a frightening experience. We believe in guiding you every step of the process at TIC Health. Here’s a detailed guide on preparing for your diagnostic imaging appointment:
DOCUMENTATION & IDENTIFICATION
- Insurance Information: Ensure you bring along your insurance card or any relevant documentation if your procedure is being covered by an insurance provider.
- Valid Photo ID: A form of identification, like a driver’s licence or passport, helps us confirm your identity and ensure the safety and privacy of your medical records.
- Relevant Medical Records: If you have had previous scans, tests, or relevant medical history, bringing them can provide our specialists with a more comprehensive view, aiding in accurate diagnostics.
CLOTHING AND PERSONAL ITEMS
- Appropriate Attire: Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. Depending on the type of scan, you may be asked to wear a gown. Avoid clothing with metal components like zippers, hooks, or underwires, as they can interfere with certain imaging technologies.
- Jewelry & Accessories: It’s best to leave jewellery, watches, and other metal accessories at home. If worn, you’ll be asked to remove them before the procedure.
- Cosmetics: Some cosmetics contain minerals that might interfere with imaging. Consider skipping makeup or using minimal amounts on the day of your appointment.
DIETARY AND MEDICAL GUIDELINES
- Fasting: Some scans, especially those with contrast, might require you to fast for a specific period before the procedure. You’ll be informed of this during your scheduling.
- Medication: Continue taking your regular medication unless instructed otherwise. If you have concerns or are on medication that affects kidney function, consult with the imaging department or your doctor.
- Hydration: Drink plenty of water before your appointment, especially if you’re scheduled for a scan that uses contrast dye. This helps in flushing out the dye post-procedure.
