Cat Scan (CT) | Muscatine Radiology

Computed Tomography provides detailed views of your lungs, bones, soft tissues & blood vessels

The cat scan, also known as CT, is a painless, non-invasive and effective imaging method that provides detailed views of tissues found throughout the body and head – including the brain. Utilizing a short bore, advanced CT scanner, Muscatine Radiology patients are assured pinpoint accuracy, an open platform, faster treatment and even faster results. We are committed to providing technological innovation along with professional expertise and our CT services are no exception.

Our CT procedures help our radiologists seek out abnormal masses, detect possible cancers that are not visible on standard X-rays, see changes in bone material, identify an aneurysm in a high-risk patient, even examine blood vessels throughout the body. CT is especially useful for obese patients whose body fat can interfere with other imaging methods. CT is an excellent alternative for patients with contraindications to MRI (i.e. those with pacemakers or other foreign metal objects within their body cavity). It is also a chosen tool for evaluating coronary artery disease.
