Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) Scan of the Fore arm 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 fore arm which can then be used to create a three dimensional image of the fore arm. This image can be used to visibly assess fore arm anatomy and to diagnose any associated problems.
