Enhancing the Interpretation of Unenhanced Abdominopelvic CT

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Unenhanced abdominopelvic CT is frequently performed in patients who are critically ill or have contraindications to intravenous contrast. These cases can be challenging to interpret for the radiologist. Attention to CT physics and care in optimizing image viewing through techniques such as windowing can maximize diagnostic yield. In this case-based review, we will discuss the CT physics concepts of attenuation, common indications and reasons for unenhanced abdominopelvic CT, and review its utility through a series of illustrative cases.
