NCCT Ankle Joint

Test Description

Non Contrast Computed Tomography (NCCT) of the ankle joint is an imaging procedure in which the rotating beams of X-rays are used to create a detailed three dimensional image of the ankle joint to identify problems associated with it.

Why Get Tested

  1. To detect the fractures of the bones of the ankle joint not visible on a simple X-ra;
  2. To detect the cause of any unexplained pain in the ankle join;
  3. To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the soft tissues like the muscle, the tendons and ligaments of the ankle join;
  4. To diagnose any suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of the joints)

Precautions

  • 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 X-ray.
