Post cat scan question

I just had a cat scan last week. Does anyone know what this will show? For those people who get the lump feeling in their throat as i do, does this test show anything related to that? Thanks.

A cat scan will show anything abnormal such as growths and shapes of tissues in you body, shows them in many different angles and measure them. If there is anything abnormal in your neck region( for instance an enlarged thyroid) it will show up. If abnormalities exsist it will pinpoint where they are and further testing in that area can be done. Good luck with your results. KK
