CT Scan-Abdomen-What are they looking for?
« on: January 15, 2014, 02:45:27 PM »
Had a low appetite for a while (3 months) and lost about 25 pounds now.  GI did an endoscopy and found some minor gastritis and some patches in my esophogus which cause me to be horse and cough.

However, tey called back to day to tell me to go get a CT scan for my abdomen.  I am surprisingly calm about it...
but wondering what kind of things they wouldn't find in an endoscopy that they will look for?  And I have to do a colonoscopy to.  Yeah!

Most likely looking at your liver, pancreas, kidneys, spleen, and gallbladder, to see if they see anything
causing your weight loss.
