What is CECT Cervical Spine?
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 is CECT Cervical Spine done?
- • 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-ray • To detect and diagnose herniated disk, which is the commonest cause of severe back pain • To detect malformations or genetic defects during spinal development in children • To direct intervention procedures like fine needle biopsy • To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the soft tissues like muscle, and ligaments of the spine • To diagnose any suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of the joints)
