Wanted to know why a CAT scan was needed In his estimation versus an Ultra Sound. I do not really want the radiation. Never did get an response to my e-mail or question that day. Only that a CAT scan was more precise. Asked in email what in my health was of concern to warrant CAT scan. No answer In email and 3 days have passed. Ultra sounds have been good enough with other Dr.s
