CECT Nasopharynx - Coronal

What is CECT Nasopharynx - Coronal?

Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) scan of the nasopharynx (coronal) is a diagnostic procedure in which a contrast material is injected and the rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the nose, air filled hollow sinuses and pharynx (mouth, throat, and esophagus)

Preparation for CECT Nasopharynx - Coronal

  • 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.
  • You may have to remove your jewelry and any metal objects which might interfere with the image.
  • 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 Nasopharynx - Coronal?

  1. To diagnose pharyngitis / sore throat (inflammation of the pharynx) and laryngitis (inflammation of the larynx)
