What is CECT Leg?

Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) scan of the leg 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 leg which can then be used to create a three dimensional image of the leg. This image can be used to visibly assess the anatomy of the leg and to diagnose any associated problems.

Why is CECT Leg done?

  1. • To detect the fractures of the bones of the leg not visible on a simple X-ray • To detect the cause of any unexplained pain in the leg • To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the soft tissues like the muscle, the tendons and ligaments of the leg • To diagnose any suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of the joints)

Preparation for CECT Leg

  • 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.
  • Depending on the area to be imaged, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown at the time of the X-ray.
  • Get the blood urea and creatinine test done to evaluate kidney function and to ensure safety of contrast before taking up the procedure.
