I've had lots of CT scans (Computer Assisted Tomography) or "CAT" scans both with contrast material (via Gatoraide milkshake and by IV) and without contrast material.

Both are a breeze and nothing at all to be worried about. You may feel a bit claustrophobic and if you are allergic to shellfish, you should let them know because the contrast dye contains iodine which is also something found in shellfish. When I was given contrast dye via IV, it felt like my hand froze for a few minutes and then it was over. Some people report a "warm and tingly" feeling whne the dye goes in. Nothing to worry about. Good luck!
