CECT Left Clavicle

Test Description

Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) Scan of the clavicle 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 clavicle or collar bone to identify any associated disorders.

Why Get Tested

  1. To detect any fractures of the bones of the clavicle (collarbone) not visible on a simple X-ra;
  2. To detect the cause of any unexplained pain in the area of the collar bon;
  3. To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the surrounding soft tissues like the muscle and tendons

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.
