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