In brief: Best view of abdomen

The abdominal ct is the best quick view of the entire abdominal cavity.
It provides a great picture of all organs and the abdominal wall, as well as the spine. This study can see everything from cancer to kidney stones to hernias to vertebral fractures to foreign bodies. Usually, you are given contrast which provides an even better view. Downside, radiation exposure similar to 400-500 x-rays.
