Instructions for patients
Before planning a CT diagnosis, the patient is prepared at the ward where he is being treated, the outpatient clinic or the competent health center.
Contrast-enhanced CT examination requires the use of iodine contrast agent applied to the patient’s venous circulation through the venous cannulas, most often placed in the veins of the arms (elbow or back). The total amount of contrast agent varies from 50-120 ml, depending on the type of examination, constitution and weight of the patient. Patients prone to allergies should be given antiallergic preparation. In patients allergic to iodine, it is necessary to consult an allergist and decide on the need for allergological testing. In patients with renal insufficiency, it is necessary to bring the values of urea and creatinine (not older than two weeks). In case of elevated values, a consultation and written permission for recording from a competent nephrologist is necessary. Patients suffering from diabetes who are on metformin-based therapy should discontinue therapy 48 hours before and after the scheduled examination. MDCT coronary angiography is performed in synchronization with the patient’s ECG. Ideally, the heart rate should be less than 60 / min, in a sinus rhythm. Therefore, prior cardiac preparation of the patient is required in terms of giving beta blockers and nitroglycerin in order to achieve the desired heart rate and dilate blood vessels. At least four hours before the examination, the patient must not eat or drink caffeinated beverages, energy drinks, green and black tea …
Opening hours:8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Appropriate certified instructions of the chosen doctor, findings of the doctor who indicated the examination, laboratory findings (urea, creatinine), as well as all medical documentation relevant to the indicated examination (previous discharge lists, findings of previous CT examinations, etc …)
Outpatient CT examinations are performed exclusively after examinations in the outpatient clinics of IKVB Dedinje (cardiac, cardiac surgery and vascular outpatient clinics) and appropriate indications of a specialist doctor employed at the institute, on the basis of which the chosen doctor issues instructions for examinations. Outpatient examinations are performed within the first shift (08: 00-14: 00)at a pre-scheduled time on the phone number011 3601 733. Upon arrival at the outpatient examination, it is necessary that the patient submits the appropriate certified instructions of the chosen doctor, indicated examination, laboratory findings (urea, creatinine), as well as all medical documentation relevant to the indicated examination (previous discharge lists, findings of previous CT examinations, etc …) from 12-14 hours on tel: 011 3601 732.
