3D CT of Right Heel
What is 3D CT of Right Heel?
3D CT of the Right Heel, also known as computed axial tomography (CAT) of the right heel, is an imaging technique used to get clear pictures of the insides of your right heel. Digital computers and the rotating beam of X-rays are used together to obtain cross-sectional images of your body. These images provide detailed information about bones, muscles, soft tissues, and blood vessels. The doctor will recommend this test to check any abnormalities in the right heel like heel fracture, tumors, infections, etc.
CT scans are generally avoided for pregnant women owing to risks to the baby. Kindly disclose if you may be pregnant before a CT scan. In some cases, a contrast agent may be administered to get clearer images.
