CT Abdomen Scan, Abdominal CT Scan

CT abdomen scans give doctors a 3-dimensional visual image that provides doctors with detailed information about diseases and disorders of the abdominal region. The abdomen, known more commonly as the “belly,” contains all the structures between the chest and the pelvis. With a CT abdomen scan, doctors can screen patients for diseases and disorders of the following organs:

  • Liver
  • Kidney
  • Spleen
  • Pancreas
  • Lower gastrointestinal tract
  • Colon
  • Rectum
  • Gallbladder
  • Bladder
  • Appendix
  • Stomach
  • Small intestine
  • Organs and tissues of the abdominal region

CT abdomen scans give doctors more detailed information on conditions in these areas than do regular x-rays (radiographs).
