CECT Femur

Test Description

Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) scan of the femur (thigh bone) 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 thigh bone or femur to detect any underlying pathological conditions.

Why Get Tested

  1. To detect the fractures of the femur (thigh bone) not visible on a simple X-ra;
  2. To detect the cause of any unexplained pain in the thigh bon;
  3. To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the soft tissues like the muscl;
  4. To diagnose any suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the thigh bone

Precautions

  • 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.
