GET READY FOR YOUR CT ANGIOGRAM

Your appointment is coming up!  The following information serves to help prepare you for your CT Angiogram, so that it goes as smoothly as possible.

Appointments usually run an hour and a half.

APPOINTMENT DETAILS

Cherry Creek Medical Center

- affiliated with UCHealth -

100 Cook St #212, Denver, CO 80206

Your appointment time and date were sent to you in a direct message and email.
You will need to arrive 30 minutes early, for paperwork and to prepare you for your test.

Parking garage below the building. Valet parking available.

HOW TO BE PREPARED

Nothing to Eat for 4 Hours

It's best to skip breakfast. For four hours before your appointment do not consume anything except for water.

No Caffeine for 12 Hours

Delay your morning coffee or tea.

No Stimulants for 48 Hours

This includes Viagra and Cialis.

Be Well Hydrated

Drink plenty of water.

MANAGE YOUR HEART RATE

The scan requires that your heart rate be
in the 40-60 BMP range.

Your heart rate may already be pretty low on its own—it may not. Either way, a prescription has been sent to your pharmacy for Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg.

Please take these as recommended by us in a private email to you with your appointment details.

Please bring the remaining pills to your appointment, and if your heart rate is still too elevated, please take an additional 25mg pill. You will be fine to drive on this medication; you will most likely just feel relaxed and calm.
