Overview


What is CECT Head?

Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) scan of the head 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 skull and brain to detect any injury or disease of the brain and skull.
