CT Abdomen Abdomen Pelvis Plain

CT Abdomen Abdomen Pelvis Plain

5000+ scans done & counting

Computed Tomography (CT) of the abdomen and pelvis is a diagnostic medical test that helps doctors to see the internal organs, blood vessels, and bones in the abdominal and pelvic regions without making an incision. Unlike traditional X-rays which provide two-dimensional images, CT scans use X-ray technology to take multiple images from different angles, and then use a computer to compile these images into cross-sectional pictures. When the term "plain" is used in the context of a CT scan, it refers to a CT scan performed without the use of a contrast material.
