Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) Scan of the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is a diagnostic procedure in which a contrast agent is injected and the rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional three dimensional images of the TMJ, the joint between temporal bones of the skull and the mandibles or jaws.
Why Get Tested
- To locate and diagnose jawbone fracture;
- To assess articulation or movement of the jaws (jaw dislocation;
- To detect any congenital anomalies (birth defects) of the TM join;
- To detect any inflammation or infection of the TM joint or the surrounding connective tissues;
- To diagnose any tumors (abnormal growths) in this area
- 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.
