with or without contrast to start with. After this what everything written in script forms? Upper extremity/Middle Extremity/Lower Extremity are called in medical terminology? This should include all possible scan with CT technology/MRI/PET. If you owned the technology and were to horse around. Ultimately you wrote yourself scrips what do they say? Educational insight(s) thank you!!!!

The other expert has opted out.

If you want educational insight, then the correct answer is that this is never done. A CT scan is not the appropriate test for many parts of the body, so we would never perform a total body CT scan to scan for unknowns. We will tailor the evaluation to the specific clinical situation, so the answer will also be different for various clinical situations.
