With a CAT scan or CT scan. Physicians will inject an intravenous contrast dye that will help to improve the quaility of images that develop. Some of the side-effects of the dye are: nausea and discomfort and in certain cases severe allergic reactions. It is recommended that patients do not eat before a CT scan to reduce the possible risk of feelings of nausea turning into a bout of vomiting. If you vomit while lying on your back for the scan, you may aspirate some of your stomach contents and possibly develop pneumonia.

The red dye that is used in a CT scan is a contrast dye. The objective of the dye is so that certain parts of the body will show up clearer in an x-ray. Contrast dye is generally given by IV into the hand or arm.
A CT scan without contrast means no dye will be used for the exam.
Yes, brain tumours can show up very clearly on CT scans especially if the patient is injected with an X-ray dye.
The metal that is used as a dye in CT scans is water soluble iodine or barium. These are sometimes avoided by patients because of allergies to the metals.

CT myelography (a test in which dye is injected into the spine) may demonstrate the cerebrospinal fluid flow between the spinal subarachnoid area and the cyst.
Many CT scans of the abdomen involve injecting a dye into the vein. This dye "lights up" blood vessels and may make it easier to diagnose certain conditions. the dye can also be toxic to the kidneys. The blood test is a test of kidney function. If abnormal, the radiologist may either not use dye or use a smaller amount so as not to injure the kidney even more. CT scans without dye do not require baseline blood tests beforehand.
A tri-phasic CT scan is a scan which will show three different stages of dye uptake in the body. The first phase will be before the injection of the dye, the second stage will be for when the dye is in the arteries (roughly 20 seconds after injection) and the third phase will be when the dye has reached the veins (a few minutes later). Sometimes a fourth scan is also done to show the dye uptake in the kidneys and bladder. A tri-phasic scan clearly delineates lesions in the liver and will show problems and irregularities in the arterial and lymphatic system.
