Contrast Enhanced Computed Tomography (CECT) scan of the pelvis is an imaging procedure where a contrast material is injected and rotating beams of X-rays are used to create thin sliced images of the lower abdomen and pelvic region which are then used to create a detailed three dimensional anatomical model of the pelvis and abdominal region.
Why Get Tested
- To diagnose any fractures of the pelvic bones which includes the hip bone and upper part of thighbone
- To detect any infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones of this region
- To diagnosis any suspected arthritis, sacroiliitis, hip dislocations and ankylosing spondylitis
- To diagnose Infections like appendicitis and inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s Disease
- To diagnose kidney, bladder or ovarian cancers
- To detect injury to internal organs of the lower abdomen and pelvic region
- To plan and guide a various treatments and procedures like biopsies, etc.
- 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.
