Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) Scan of the cervical spine 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 part of the spinal column passing through the neck or cervical region of the spine to identify any problems associated with it.
Why Get Tested
- To detect the cause of any unexplained neck pain or upper back pain;
- To detect fractures, inflammations, or infections in bones not visible on a simple X-ra;
- To detect and diagnose herniated disk, which is the commonest cause of severe back pai;
- To detect malformations or genetic defects during spinal development in childre;
- To direct intervention procedures like fine needle biops;
- To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the soft tissues like muscle, and ligaments of the spin;
- To diagnose any suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of the joints)
- 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.
