SIT BACK, BE COMFORTABLE AND RELAX

Sit comfortably in the plush reclining armchair and rest your arm or leg in the scanning chamber. Most scans take 20-30 minutes, while more complex scans may take an hour. Parents can accompany children throughout the scan.

If you experience discomfort or have an allergic reaction, a physician will be available for immediate assistance.
