Medical - Medical (general) / CT scans -- abbreviations
Italian term or phrase: CT s.p.
This is from an adverse drug reaction report. The patient had a gastrointestinal reaction which was studied with a CT scan (of some sort):

"Recenti dolori addominali e retroraggie. TAC *s.p.* Coproculture normali."

I find online examples of "sp" = spinal or spiral, but I don't think it applies here because of the punctuation s.p.

What does s.p. stand for in this case?

Grazie mille.

TAC senza prescrizione
Explanation:
s.p. solitamente è utilizzato per i farmici e indica senza prescrizione.
Può essere che ora questa forma sia utilizzata anche per gli esami, se si considera la recente legge che impedisce ai medici di prescrivere esami senza valide motivazioni. Se l'esame è stato fatto d'urgenza è probabile che significhi senza prescrizione..
vediamo se i colleghi hanno altre idee!

Ciao Enrica. I don't think that "senza prescrizione" applies in this case; however, it is another possible meaning of this abbreviation. Thank you.
