3D CT of Face or Neck
What is 3D CT of Face or Neck?
A 3D computerized tomography scan (CT or CAT scan) face and neck creates cross-sectional images of the ankle by using computers and rotating X-ray machines. These images provide detailed information of soft tissues and bones of face and neck. It provides more detailed information as compared to X-ray. The data from contrast CT scans are then converted into a 3D image which can be further rotated 360 degrees in any dimension.
Tell your doctor if there is a possibility that you are pregnant. Some allergic reaction to contrast medium can happen, like nausea, vomiting, irritation but that is treatable immediately. Avoid metal zips, studs, etc. A mild sedative may be required for those who may be particularly tense or anxious or even claustrophobic in the scanner room alone.
