A first person view of the CT Scanner
LASER APERTURE : Do not stare into beam
Every six months I have to get some tests done to make sure my bionic parts are not going haywire. It never fails that the days leading up to the tests and subsequent visit with the doctor keep me up at night more than I usually keep myself up at night.
Getting a CT-scan is a shot in the dark—procedures vary between institutions. I am happy to report that a glowing enema was not required this trip around. I just had the contrast injected and the attendant warned me that effects vary. I may experience a warm feeling that would make it seem like I “made it” in my pants and a funny metallic taste in my mouth. Both rang true. Luckily, these feelings subsided rather quickly.
Tomorrow, I go back for a scan of “the other half” and get results next week.
Lots of photo opportunities around the hospital…
