During this study, contrast media containing iodine will be administered through an intravenous line in
order to permit the acquisition of multiple X-ray images called a CAT scan. Prior to the acquisition of these
images, you will be administered a medication called a beta-blocker. This medication may be administered
orally and/or intravenously. Once an appropriate heart rate is obtained, you will be administered
intravenous contrast media. During the infusion of this contrast media, you may experience a warm feeling
throughout your body. Multiple X-rays will be obtained. Following the X-ray, you will be asked to drink
plenty of water and will be able to leave the Imaging Center shortly thereafter.
After the study is completed, the vascular portion of your study will be interpreted by a cardiologist,
cardiothoracic surgeon or vascular surgeon with the non-vascular portion being interpreted by a radiologist.
For the purposes of helping with advances in medicine, we ask that you allow your results to be used if
needed in research. If is used, your name and identifying data will be removed.
