    Used to evaluate abdominal trauma, the abdominal computerized axial tomography scan can show internal bleeding and organ injuries, lesions, and tumors. The machine holds a rotating X-ray tube and X-ray receptors, and the patient is required to ingest a small dose of barium or other contrast liquid before the procedure. An intravenous line is required for further contrast material to be introduced into the body.
