Hello there. I can understand your concern. Its basically a CT scan of the PNS(para nasal sinus). Its a non invasive procedure therefore no pain nothing. Therefore no need to be worried/tensed etc. CT machine is huge but no need to get intimidated by it. You do not need to take any special precautions as such. You can go after breakfast and also after taking your blood pressure medications. And yes you can go to office after the test. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
