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?
- • 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
Preparation for CECT Femur
- 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.
