X-ray of your belly: Ct, or computed tomography is a special was of taking x-rays that allows up to see the body in slices.

Does an abdominal CT scan with and without contrast have the same amount of radiation as two CT scans?
Yes: The ct scan will consist of at least 3 parts. A very low dose scan to show the anatomy and allow for planning of the full ct scan. The next scan is the "real" scan without contrast. Then there will be at least 1 scan with contrast, usually when the veins are most opacified, at about 70 seconds after the start of the injection. However, some contrast scans have multiple phases for some anatomy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What's the difference between ultrasound and CT scan? Can someone explain the difference between an ultrasound and a CT scan? I'm going to have both done on my abdomen because of pain and discomfort that i've been experiencing.
CT vs. Ultrasound: Ct uses xrays and special computers to make cross sectional images of the body. Ultrasound uses soundwaves to generate pictures of body parts. Both are useful for evaluating abdominal pain, but each has certain advantages (e.g., ultrasound slightly better for evaluating gallbladder and female pelvic organs and uses no radiation; ct is better for evaluation of bowel and pancreas.). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have had bloating and gas alone with left pelvic pain. After vagianal and top pelvis ultrasound and a CT scan without contrast the e r doctor said ultrasound showed a left ovary cyst that should clear on it own. Ct scan normal. With these test would it
