CT brain: One of the most common reasons to order CT brain without contrast is to rule out a cerebral hemorrhage - new blood shows up better, and can be obscured with contrast. Structures and any abnormalities such as lesions can still show up quite well without contrast, especially with newer CT imaging. Hope that helps!
