See below: A ct scan is very fast. The tube of the scan is short. The scan moves you during the study so you're not stationed in one place. We haven't had any patient with claustrophobia with ct scan. If it does happen, there is conscious sedation and even general anethesia but truely i haven't heard of that ever used in ct.
