CT Abdomen and Pelvis Prep Instructions

We have given you this recommended instruction sheet because you have an appointment for a CT scan of your abdomen and/or pelvis. Please make sure to read and follow the instructions carefully before your procedure. If you have any further questions, please speak to a member of your healthcare team who will be pleased to advise you.

The procedure involves a computerized tomography (CT) scanner taking images of your abdomen and/or pelvis. These images are cross-sectional (like slices) and are used to produce 2D and 3D images.

Recommended preparation: Buy a bottle of Miralax (OTC) or a Ready-to-use enema kit at any pharmacy prior to your procedure. (This is a non-prescription laxative and at home kit.)
