A CT scan can be performed on any part of the body.
These scans are usually of bones such as wrists, hands, legs and feet.
Your doctor may refer you for a CT to help diagnose a problem, to better define a known problem or to monitor for changes.
You will lie on the scanner in the best way to image the part being scanned. For example, you will lie on your back if your lower limbs are being scanned, or possibly your front (stomach) if your upper limbs (wrists/hands) are being scanned.
Usually, there is no contrast required. Further information on intravenous contrast injections is available here.
