Default Low iq question.

Hey, I have a stupid question, shed some light for me please!

We need non-contrast CT to diagnose blood in the cranium...

what do we need a CT with a contrast for? Like aneurisms maybe?

You need IV contrast to rule out tumors, infections, and any vessel abnormalities (i.e., AVM). Hope it helps.
