What is CECT Orbit Coronal?
Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) scan of the Orbits 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 the eyes, orbits or eye sockets, and surrounding bony and soft tissues which can then be used to create a three dimensional image of the eye orbits. This image can be used to visibly assess and detect problems in the eyes, orbits and surrounding tissues.
Why is CECT Orbit Coronal done?
- • To detect any fractures in the bones of the orbit or eye socket • To detect any foreign objects lodged in the eyes or eye socket • To diagnose any infections or inflammation in the area around the eyes • To detect and diagnose diseases of the soft tissues in this area, for e.g. muscles, blood vessels and nerves • To detect the presence of any tumors (abnormal growth)
