CAT Scan (CT)

CAT scans are a series of images that are made by a highly sophisticated computer and X-ray machine. CAT scans give more detailed pictures of bone and soft tissue organs than ordinary X-rays. For most patients, a contrast agent (dye) will be injected into a vein. It is used to outline blood vessels or fill up organs of the body such as the liver or kidneys so they can be seen more easily.

The results of the test will help your doctor recommend the best treatment for you.
