Does the normal CT Scan Abdomen with contrast include the study of the veins and vessels and arteries like its in CT Angiography?
The reason I am asking this is because my doctor has suggested to do Abdominal CT Scan with contrast to find out the reason of my constant upper abdominal pain of 2 years that is aggravated by movements. My bowel movements are ok everything seems ok except this debilitating pain which is always there and aggravated by doing anything even standing for longer period. I have done many tests be it mrcp, ultrasound, endoscopy all clear.
Although this pain has ruined my life and is unbearable I dont think I have anything wrong with my organs rather I believe it is related to some vein, artery or nerve.
Now I am not sure whether a simple Contrast based Abdomen CT Scan covers these studies or I have to rather ask for CT Angiography of Abdomen instead??
