Why would my body get extremely hot during a CT scan?

I have had several CT scans since 2011 due to cancer and follow-ups. I experienced a small feeling of warmth when it got to the bladder area, and this happened each time. On Thursday, I had another one done at UC hospital in Denver. My whole body got extremely hot. Why?

This is common when contrast is given. You can feel warm throughout your entire body and it usually goes away within 30 minutes.
