What is NCCT Leg?
Non Contrast Computed Tomography (NCCT) of the leg is an imaging procedure in which the rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the leg which can then be used to create a three dimensional image of the leg. This image can be used to visibly assess the anatomy of the leg and to diagnose any associated problems.
Why is NCCT Leg done?
- • To detect the fractures of the bones of the leg not visible on a simple X-ray • To detect the cause of any unexplained pain in the leg • To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the soft tissues like the muscle, the tendons and ligaments of the leg • To diagnose any suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of the joints)
Preparation for NCCT Leg
- 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.
- Depending on the area to be imaged, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown at the time of the scan.
