A male asked:

Can a CT scan properly diagnosis a hernia or abdominal pain?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Gerry Tolbert
Family Medicine 13 years experience
Sometimes: Like any test, a ct scan is incomplete without a history and physical exam from a patient. Most of the time the story from the patient narrows the causes of abdominal pain considerably. Often the ct is used to *confirm* a diagnosis. Abdominal pain has so many causes that a ct scan alone is typically not sufficient for any useful diagnosis.
