Test Details
Test Code:RA0193
Test Name:Scan Upper Abdomen
Test Details & Preparation
A computed tomography (CT) of the upper abdomen is a conventional secondary examination procedure when an ultrasound examination of the upper abdomen organs provides no clear results. With the use of X-rays and special computers it is possible to depict organs of the body in tomogram (cross-sectional) images. Thereby the radiologist can gain information about the inside of the body and potentially assign the changes to a certain clinical condition, thus making the appropriate treatment possible. The examination shows changes in the region of the upper abdominal organs (liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys), as well as in the vessels and upper abdomen lymph nodes.

A CT of the organs of the upper abdomen is an ultra-modern procedure that uses X-rays and special computers to examine the organs of the upper abdomen. Tomograms of these organs are generated and then assessed by the radiologist on a monitor.

By means of a CT of the upper abdomen organs an assessment of the gallbladder, the pancreas, the spleen, the kidneys as well as the abdomen vessels including the abdominal aorta is possible. Very different conditions or complaints can be clarified, (e.g. stomach ache, liver functional disorders, gallstones, kidney stones and pathological changes in organs including tumours and malformations). It is also possible to take CT-specific samples of organs (biopsies). Inconclusive results from a preliminary examination (e.g. ultrasound or X-ray) can be definitively assessed. The aim is to discover all changes, and to differentiate benign and malignant changes where possible, so that the appropriate treatment can be introduced if necessary.

A CT of the upper abdominal organs is frequently carried out to clarify the inconclusive results of a preliminary examination such as painful upper abdomen, bloated abdomen liver dysfunction enlarged upper abdominal organs, suspicion of a tumour metastases from a known tumour suspicion of inflammatory changes in the upper abdominal organs and more.

You should eat no solid food for at least 4 hours before the procedure. You can drink as much water as you like. You should take your usual daily medication with some liquid in the morning. Before the procedure, please tell the radiologist about all medication you are taking. The entire procedure including preparation takes about 10 minutes.
