What is CECT Right Foot?
Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) Scan of right foot is a diagnostic procedure in which a contrast material is injected and the rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of a foot which helps to form a three dimensional image of the complete foot. This image can be used to visibly assess foot anatomy and detect any associated problems.
Why is CECT Right Foot done?
- • To detect fractures in the bones of the foot • To detect tumors (abnormal growth) or other lesions in the foot • To detect deformations and malformations of the foot • To detect any infections of the foot • To diagnose flat foot and Cavus foot • To guide and monitor biopsy or other operative procedures of the foot
Preparation for CECT Right Foot
- 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.
- Get the blood urea and creatinine test done to evaluate kidney function and to ensure safety of contrast before taking up the procedure.
