CECT Scan Right Foot
What is CECT Scan Right Foot?
A CECT Right Foot or Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) Scan of the right foot is a diagnostic imaging technique that uses multiple rotating X-rays and a contrast material to create cross-sectional images of the right foot.
The detailed pictures help evaluate and assess the conditions affecting the foot region, including bone fractures, ligament tear, injury, etc. It also aids in monitoring procedures associated with the right foot. Following symptoms may require this test for proper diagnosis:
Pain and inflammation
Restriction of range of motion
Loss of stability
Some people may experience immediate allergic reactions after an injection of the contrast material. In most cases, these reactions are mild. An abnormal test scan may indicate deformations and malformations such as flat foot and Cavus foot.
