What you need to know about Abdominal CT Scan in Tel Aviv

A CT scan (computed tomography scan), also known as a CAT scan, is a specialized X-ray that can generate cross-sectional images of an area of your body. During a CT scan, the machine circles your body and sends pictures to a computer, where a technician can view them. The machine creates pictures of your organs, bones, and other tissues using a combination of X-rays and a computer. It can show more detail than a regular X-ray. 

An abdominal CT scan is used to help your doctor see the organs, bones, and blood vessels located in the abdominal cavity. The CT scan provides multiple images to help your doctor see numerous different views of the abdomen. An abdominal CT scan is used when your doctor suspects an abnormality in your abdominal area, but cannot find enough information through a lab test or physical exam.

Some of the reasons your doctor may recommend an abdominal CT scan include:

  • A mass in your abdomen that can be felt

  • Abdominal pain

  • Unexplained weight loss

  • Kidney stones (to check the location and the size of the stones)

  • Infections, such as appendicitis

  • Inflammation of the intestines

  • Recent cancer diagnosis

  • To check for intestinal obstruction

  • Injuries following trauma

What's the Recovery Time?

An abdominal CT scan requires little to no downtime. You can likely resume your normal activities, including work, straight after your abdominal CT scan.

What's the Success Rate?

An abdominal CT scan has a high success and accuracy rate. The test can find various problems in the abdomen, including:

  • Liver problems, such as alcohol-related liver disease

  • Kidney problems, such as kidney infection or kidney stones

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm

  • Crohn’s disease

  • Cancers, such as in the pancreas or in the colon.

An abdominal CT scan is a safe procedure. However, there are risks that you need to be aware of, particularly for children as they are more sensitive to radiation exposure than adults. CT scans for children is only recommended as a last resort. The risks of abdominal CT scans are:

  • Birth defects – during pregnancy, exposure to radiation increases the risk of birth defects. Therefore, it is vital that you let your doctor know if you are or might be pregnant. 

  • Allergic reaction – if you are allergic to the contrast, you may develop itchiness or skin rash. Although rare, a life-threatening allergic reaction can occur.

  • Slightly increased risk of cancer – although this is very rare, radiation exposure from CT scans can slightly increase your risk of cancer. The chances of developing cancer because of a CT scan are around 1 in 2,000.
