In brief: CT myelogram
It depends it you will be awake during the procedure or if any anesthesia will be used.
Usually, there is not any specific preparation that i can think of. I have had such a procedure performed on me, it was not a big deal. I had to lie on a table and local anesthesia or numbing medication was used. It was not painful. Try not to worry and good luck.
