Test Description

Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) scan of the shoulder joint is a diagnostic procedure in which a contrast material is injected and rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the shoulders, which can then be used to create a complete three dimensional image of the bones and the joints. This image is used to visibly assess the shoulder bones and joints and detect any underlying disorders.

Why Get Tested

  1. To detect any fractures of the bones of the shoulder which were not visible on a simple X-ra;
  2. To detect inflammations or damage to the cartilages and joint;
  3. To detect any pathology of the soft tissues like the muscles, the tendons and ligament;
  4. To detect any suspected infections or inflammations of the shoulder join;
  5. To detect any structural anomalies of the shoulder joint;
  6. To diagnose cause of disrupted motility at joints like frozen shoulde;
  7. To detect any tumors (abnormal growth) or other masse;
  8. To guide treatment procedures like placement of implants for complicated fractures

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.
