What is CT Triple Phase Whole Abdomen?
A CT (Computrised Tomography) triple phase whole abdomen is an advanced imaging technique which is mainly used for the diagnosis of the lesions of the liver. In this scan, the images are taken in three phases: first phase is without the contrast (native), second phase is when a contrast is injected and the arteries are visualised and the third phase helps to visualise the veins when the contrast is flushed out of the portal veins.
Why is CT Triple Phase Whole Abdomen done?
- To look at the pathology of the liver and diagnose the liver disease
- To diagnose the presence of any liver tumors (abnormal growth/ cancer)
Preparation for CT Triple Phase Whole Abdomen
- Pregnant women should inform their doctor (and x-ray technician) as the radiations may affect the fetus. If needed, precautions can be taken to lower the radiation exposure to the fetus.
- You may have to remove your jewelry and any metal objects which might interfere with the image.
