  Some DBMSs will recognize when a query can be resolved by retrieving data only by scanning a secondary index without having to retrieve data from the base table.  

  Does Teradata apply a similar concept?  

Of course, you'll see it in Explain: ... by way of index #n without accesing the base table ...

  With a PI on ColA and a NUSI on ColC,ColD, if a query selected only ColC and ColD would the query do a single AMP query against the index or would it still use the base table?  

It will use the index but NUSI access is All-AMPs not single AMP.
