I've been told I need a CT scan to rule out the possibility of a pulmonary embolism. However I suffer from severe anxiety and, upon having a cannula fitted to inject contrast dye, I had a severe panic attack and had to leave the hospital.
I was wondering if there was an alternative to a cannula to administer the contrast dye for a pulmonary ct scan? Failing this does anyone have a bit more information, how long the cannula has to be applied etc? The thought of sitting round for a long time with it stuck in my arm fills me with panic. Any advice would be appreciated.
