Hello,
Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
More often than not , Contrast enhanced CT scan abdomen pelvis will better delineate any bowel wall pathology/ tumor ....also contrast will help is stage the tumor better , in terms of spread to adjacent lymph nodes & its local inasiveness into the adjacent neurovascular bundle .
So ALL CT scans done in cases of bowel pathologies are incomplete without contrast.
