Average Cost of an Abdominal CT Scan 2011

The average cost of an abdominal CT scan in 2011 is $1,000. However, the cost varies substantially from one state to another and between a hospital and other types of facilities. The expense may also differ depending on whether the scan is done exclusively for the abdomen and when performed along with other organs such as chest or pelvis. The cost comprises radiologist fee and technical fee and a major portion goes to the radiologist. Insurance firms do not extend coverage for CT scans and that is why the services are mostly offered as cash discounts. CT scanning of the abdomen may not be as sensitive in identifying gallstones as ultrasound of the abdomen.
