What is CECT PNS Saggital View?
Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) scan of the Paranasal sinuses (PNS) 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 PNS, which are air filled hollow spaces in the facial bones surrounding the nasal cavities. These can then be used to create a three dimensional image of the paranasal Sinuses.
Why is CECT PNS Saggital View done?
- • To detect and diagnose chronic sinusitis or presence of any fluid in the sinus cavities • To detect any infections or inflammation of the sinuses • To detect the presence of any tumors (abnormal growth) • To plan and guide the treatment procedures if any conducted • To diagnose suspected deviated nasal septum
Preparation for CECT PNS Saggital View
- 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.
