What is CECT Face?

Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) scan of the face is a diagnostic procedure where a contrast material is injected and the rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the face which are further used to form a three dimensional image of the face. This image can be used to visibly assess facial anatomy and detect problems.

Why is CECT Face done?

  1. • To detect disorders or diseases affecting the air-filled cavities of bones around the nose called sinuses • To detect and diagnose diseases affecting the facial or jaw bones like Paget’s Disease • To detect fractures of the facial or jaw bones due to trauma • To plan interventional and reconstructive procedures of the face • To determine problems of the eyes, bones around the eyes, and optic nerves

Preparation for CECT Face

  • 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.
  • Get the blood urea and creatinine test done to evaluate kidney function and to ensure safety of contrast before taking up the procedure.
