What to expect
You will be admitted to the hospital for this procedure which will be carried out in the CT Department. Because this procedure can be painful and because it is very important to stay completely still, you will be given a general anaesthetic so that you are asleep throughout the procedure. This means that you cannot eat or drink for 6 hours beforehand.
