Overview


What is CECT Femur?

Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) scan of the femur (thigh bone) is a diagnostic procedure in which a contrast material is injected and the rotating beams of X-rays are used to create a detailed three dimensional image of the thigh bone or femur to detect any underlying pathological conditions.

Why is CECT Femur done?

  1. • To detect the fractures of the femur (thigh bone) not visible on a simple X-ray • To detect the cause of any unexplained pain in the thigh bone • To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the soft tissues like the muscle • To diagnose any suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the thigh bone
