What is CECT Arm?
Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) Scan of the arm is a diagnostic procedure in which a contrast material is injected and the rotating beams of X-rays are used to create a detailed three dimensional image of the arm that can help to assess any diseases, damage or other problems associated with it.
Preparation for CECT Arm
- Pregnant women should inform their doctor (and x-ray technician) as the radiations may affect the fetus. If needed, precautions can be taken to lower the radiation exposure to the fetus.
- Depending on the area to be imaged, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown at the time of the X-ray.
- Get the blood urea and creatinine test done to evaluate kidney function and to ensure safety of contrast before taking up the procedure.
Why Get Tested for CECT Arm?
- • To detect the fractures of the bones of the arm not visible on a simple X-ray • To detect the cause of any unexplained pain in the arm • To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the soft tissues like the muscle, the tendons and ligaments of the arm • To diagnose any suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of the joints)
