Descriptive speech

Mrs. Claustrophobic: "I'll do a CT scan, but not an MRI. What does a CT scan look like, anyway?"

Dr. Grumpy: "It looks like a big donut, and they put you through the hole in the middle."

Mrs. Claustrophobic: "I don't know... I don't like donuts."

Pause

Dr. Grumpy: "Okay, it looks like a big bagel, and they put you through the hole in the middle."

Mrs. Claustrophobic: "Oh, okay. I can do that."

I just had a CT scan, and it didn't taste like either one of those things.

Laughing at the comment about the cervix from Old MD Girl.

I'm not even gonna mention the other word that comes to mind when thinking of ways to entice some men into a computed tomography orifice.
