Everything you need to know about Computed Tomography (CT) & CT Scanning


Contrast Consent

question1. Do you need consent for IV contrast?
question2. Do you need consent for oral or rectal contrast?
question3. Who gets the signed consent?
question4. What if the patient is unable to sign consent what do we do?
questionWhen the patient is not able to sign consent often a relative has the patient's permission to act on their behalf. When this is not the case, each hospital has its own internal policy (which at Hopkins means a doctor can sign if the study needs to be done immediately.)
question5. What is your consent policy in an emergency?
