PET/CT scanI’m not usually claustrophobic, but even the open nature of the CT scan made me a bit uneasy.  The CT involved iodinated contrast, which is a form of intravenous radiocontrast (radiographic dye) containing iodine to enhance the visibility of vascular structures and organs during radiographic procedures.

Immediately following my CT scan, I received a CD with the results.  In view of my background with radiopharmaceutical companies – I loaded the CD in my computer to try and peak at the results.  Unfortunately, the CD was only for Windows computers and I only had access to a Mac. Nonetheless, I had a general idea of what wouldn’t be a good sign – such as a dark center in the enlarged lymph node, which could indicate necrosis.
