  5. Tell the receptionist when you have finished drinking

You will be scanned about 20 minutes later.

Do not empty your bladder until after the scan.

Any problems, please speak to the receptionist.

How to use the enema

Go to the toilet with the tube of enema and break off the cap.

To make it easier to insert the nozzle into your rectum, squeeze out a small drop of fluid and spread it over the nozzle. Gently insert only the nozzle fully into your back passage (rectum) and squeeze out all contents of the tube and keep squeezing the tube as you remove it. This action prevents the medication being drawn back into the nozzle.

Empty your bladder at this time if needed. Wash and dry your hands before leaving the toilet.
