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

Doubt it: 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. ...Read more

Negative beta HCG on 07/10/14. CT scan chest abdomen pelvis w/contrast 07/17/14.  Positive beta HCG on 07/30/14.  Risk to fetus from CT scan?

Questions: When did you have sex? How high was the beta? If the beta was low and/or you had sex after the 17th, no risk for the fetus. If the beta was high and you had sex before the 17th, then there is some risk to the fetus. ...Read more

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

CT Scan Findings: 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. ...Read more

2 See Ur Intestine: 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. ...Read more
