Computed Tomography, often called CT or CAT Scan, is an x-ray technique that provdes an excellent view of your body's bones, organs, and other tissues. Some scans require the use of a contrast medium to highlight tissues being studied. Contrast may be given intravenously, orally, or rectally, depending on the body part being evaluated.
Please inform your doctor and/or technologist prior to the exam if you are allergic to iodine or other contrast dyes.
For more information about CT Scans, please call the Radiology Department at 563-568-3411.
