In brief: The dye

With ct scan there is an injection of a dye that could affect the kidneys.
The kidney function is checked routinely because the risk of damage from the dye goes high if there is some kidney problems.

if CT scan will have contrast, checking to be sure kidneys can safely handle the dye load.
