Guidelines for ordering CT exams with contrast

Abdominal and pelvic imaging typically requires contrast unless the study is being performed to assess adrenal nodules or kidney stones. Cancer imaging, and imaging obtained to work up infection is best performed with contrast. Additionally, all CT angiograms require IV contrast. Other common studies such as routine CT heads, spine imaging and low-dose CT chest are done with unenhanced technique.
