What is CECT Shoulder Joint?
Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) scan of the shoulder joint is a diagnostic procedure in which a contrast material is injected and rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the shoulders, which can then be used to create a complete three dimensional image of the bones and the joints. This image is used to visibly assess the shoulder bones and joints and detect any underlying disorders.
Why is CECT Shoulder Joint done?
