Would CT scan of chest abdomen and pelvis with contrast help diagnosis of celiac disease?

Doubt it

Stomach
If any irregularities in the intestinal wall were found, it would be just that, irregularities. Their presence would suggest a problem but the overlap with other possible conditions would make the information inconclusive. A normal study would also not rule out the condition.

Can a CT Scan of the abdomen/pelvis without contrast detect colon cancer and ulcers?

CT Scan Findings

Colonic
CT scan is not the best study to detect colon cancer or ulcers. Although a CT scan may show a large sized colon cancer, the sensitivity of this is greatly reduced without the administration of oral contrast. Ulcers are typically not seen on CT scan. The best diagnostic study for both of these would be an endoscopy and colonoscopy.

Had CT scan on pelvis/abdomen with contrast 2 years ago & a full body CTA with contrast a few months ago. I have a vitamin d deficiency. Cancer risk?

If you are

Vitamin_d
talking about cancer risk from the x rays you received? Your risk is very, very small. If you are worried, meet with the physicist at the hospital where you had your exams.

A CT of the Abdomen can be very helpful for diagnosing recurrent hernias. An important part of the study is to look at the intestine relative to the hernia. Contrast in the intestine makes the interpretation of these films much easier.

Worried about cancer. Dr. recommended an abdomen pelvis CT scan with contrast because of lower right pain that came up clean. It was a 10MSV dose. Is 10MSV a lot and should I be worried? Thanks

10 mSv is typical

You received the typical dose for an abdomen/pelvis CT. Your chance of developing cancer increased by 0.07% from your background lifetime risk. See http://www.xrayrisk.com

What is the radiation hazard of doing Contrast Pelvis& Abdomen CT Scan one time.My Total exam DLP is 340.83mGy.My wt.106 pounds. I had gone to emergency dept for pain in abdo.They did USG and it was degenerative fibroid.Then they did contrast CT Scan Pelv

In

In a word, no. A single CT scan is exceedingly unlikely to cause you any problem of any kind at any point in your life. It is not possible to say that there is no risk at all, because any exposure to radiation (including cosmic radiation from the sun or from naturally occurring radiation that's all around us) can potentially cause a cancer.

What is Ct scan of abdomen and pelvic with contrast?

X-ray of your belly

Ct_scan
CT, or computed tomography is a special was of taking X-rays that allows up to see the body in slices. We use contrast, a type of x-ray dye, to better see blood vessels (IV contrast) and the GI tract (oral contrast). The abdomen covers from the diaphragms through the kidneys, and the pelvis covers from the hip bones to your upper thighs. They are done for mahy reasons, not just cancer staging.

Ct scan of abdomen and pelvic with contrast the best test for stomach cancer?

May not

Cancer_in_household
be the beat choice, but can be one test performed. The CT scan may show stomach thickening but that finding can be non-apecific. Beat option is endoscopy and biopsy of the stomach.
