CECT Hip Joint

Test Description

CECT (Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography) Scan is a diagnostic procedure in which a contrast material is injected and rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the hip joint which are then used to create a three dimensional image of the hip joint. This image can be used to visibly assess and detect problems in the joint and surrounding tissues.

Why Get Tested

  1. To detect fractures of the bones forming the hip join;
  2. To diagnose any osteoarthritis or dislocation of the hip join;
  3. To detect infections or inflammation of the hip join;
  4. To diagnose any infections of the tendons and ligaments supporting the hip join;
  5. To detect the presence of tumors (abnormal growths) or other masses in the area of hip joint

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.
