CECT Whole Abdomen

Test Description

Computed tomography (CT) or Computerized axial tomography (CAT scan) is a diagnostic imaging test used to create detailed images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels. The cross-sectional images generated during a CT scan can be reformatted in multiple planes, and can even generate three-dimensional images which can be viewed on a computer monitor, printed on film or transferred to electronic media. CT scanning is often the best method for detecting many different cancers since the images allow your doctor to confirm the presence of a tumor and determine its size and location. It is a fast, painless, noninvasive and highly accurate test. Preparation Tell your doctor if there is a possibility that you are pregnant. Some allergic reaction to contrast medium can happen, like nausea, vomiting, irritation but that is treatable immediately. Avoid metal zips, studs, etc. A mild sedative may be required for those who may be particularly tense or anxious or even claustrophobic in the scanner room alone.

Precautions

  • Do not eat or drink anything other than water for 8-12 hours before the test.
  • Inform your doctor and technician if you are pregnant or may be pregnant before the test.
  • You will have to remove your jewellery and avoid wearing clothes with metal objects like metal zips, studs etc. which might interfere with the image
  • You are advised to get blood urea and creatinine test done before this test to ensure safety of the contrast.
