Abdomen and Pelvis CT without contrast


Exam Date:



5 mm thick axial images were obtained through the abdomen and pelvis without intravenous contrast.  1.25 mm thick axial images as well as coronal and sagittal reformatted images were also submitted for interpretation.

The visualized portions of the lungs are normal in appearance. 

The visualized portion of the heart is normal in size without pericardial effusion.  The abdominal aorta is not well evaluated without intravenous contrast but appears normal in caliber without evidence of focal aneurysmal dilitation.

There is a limited evaluation of the solid and hollow visceral organs secondary to the lack of intravenous contrast.  The liver is normal in size without focal hepatic lesions.  No intrahepatic ductal dilatation is seen.  The gallbladder, common bile duct, pancreas, spleen, adrenals and kidneys are normal in appearance.  No hydronephrosis, peri-nephric stranding or radio-opaque calculi are visualized.

The urinary bladder, prostate/uterus and adnexa are within normal limits.

The colon is normal in appearance and without any wall thickening or pericolonic stranding. 

No intraperitoneal free air of fluid is identified.  No pathologic lymphadenopathy is seen. 

There are no osseous or soft tissue abnormalities.
