Readi-Cat is a liquid barium product used to coat the stomach and intestines, allowing them to be seen more clearly on a CT Scan. If you are scheduled for a certain type of CT Scan, you may be asked to drink this barium prior to your appointment. Readi-Cat is available for pick up at any of our locations prior to your appointment. Detailed instructions will be given when you schedule your exam.
You will be informed about any necessary exam preparations during the scheduling process, although general prep information can be found on our Web site. If you have any specific questions, you should speak with one of our schedulers.
