Test Description

Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) Scan of the neck is a diagnostic procedure in which a contrast material is injected and the rotating beams of X-rays are used to create a detailed three dimensional image of the neck to identify problems associated with the vertebrae and the other soft tissues in the neck region.

Why Get Tested

  1. To detect any fractures, inflammations, or infections in bones which may not have been visible on a simple X-ray
  2. To detect and diagnose any herniated disk in the neck area (cervical spine), which is the commonest cause of severe neck or upper back pain
  3. To detect tumors of the spinal cord
  4. To detect malformations during spinal development in children
  5. To measure bone density to diagnose and estimate severity of conditions like osteoporosis, arthritis, etc.
  6. To detect and diagnose any injuries to the softer tissues in the neck
  7. For direct intervention procedures like fine needle biopsy in the neck area

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.
