Abstract

Computed tomography (CT) of the abdominal cavity is a promising diagnostic method in cases where conventional radiography does not provide the necessary information, especially when the internal organs of the abdominal cavity and retroperitoneal space are affected. Thanks to the technical improvements made in the latest generations of computed tomographs, the scanning time has been significantly reduced, the image quality has been improved due to the elimination of artifacts by the optimal choice of the level and width of the window, as well as reducing the thickness of the sections and an appropriate approach to the study area. CT allows for targeted biopsy.
