When arriving for your appointment, make sure you have:

  • The original request signed by your doctor.
  • Your valid health insurance card and payment method for your exam, if applicable.
  • The images on CD and copies of the reports of previous exams.

Please arrive about 15 to 30 minutes early to receive a free parking coupon, available in front, and check-in.

Products needed for preparation are provided to you free of charge.

Please note – Incomplete preparation: If the patient does not complete the preparation, he must notify the technologist BEFORE proceeding with the exam.

Any heart or kidney disease should be mentioned, as the type of laxative used in the preparation may differ. If you are on any medications, you should take them as usual (with as little water as possible on the morning of the exam). Diabetic patients should check their blood sugar level more frequently during the preparation and the morning of the exam.
