INITIO offers a variety of scans to suit each patient’s individual needs based on their medical history. Each scan has specific preparation that must be followed before, during and/or after the appointment. It is important that the preparation necessary for the appointment is followed. Upon booking the appointment, we will provide an appointment letter, which will include the pre-scan preparation necessary for the appointment which you are scheduled for.


If you have diabetes and are scheduled for any of the following exams:

PET FDG brain, PET FDG non-contrast or PET FDG with contrast,

please follow the additional pre-scan preparation.
