Well ya learn something everyday, never heard of a ct scan without the contrast? Is it because you are allergic?

Roo had a CT scan with contrast and it didn't pick up her Crohns in the ileum.

I'm the same as Roo - I had a CT with contrast (I had to drink barium and also have dye injected into an IV) but it did not find anything except that I have a lesion on my liver, which is most likely benign. It didn't find any evidence of IBD or any other disease, though.
