CECT Right Hip Joint
What is CECT Right Hip Joint?
A CECT Right Hip Joint or Contrast-Enhanced Computed Tomography of the right hip joint is a diagnostic imaging technique. It uses special x-ray equipment and contrast material to provide excellent anatomic information of the right hip joint.
Physicians recommend it if the patient is experiencing limping, pain in the groin area, stiffness, or radiating pain to the right leg. The cross-section image created by this scan aids diagnosis of various disorders of hip joints such as:
· Femoroacetabular impingement
· Bone tumours
· Calcified intra-articular bodies
CECT Right Hip Joint scan is a relatively safe procedure. Allergic reactions to contrast materials are infrequent and usually mild like allergy or irritation. An abnormal test scan can indicate defects or deformities, or fractures in the right hip joint.
