Contrast Enhanced Computed Tomography (CECT) scan of the pelvis is an imaging procedure where a contrast material is injected and rotating beams of X-rays are used to create thin sliced images of the lower abdomen and pelvic region which are then used to create a detailed three dimensional anatomical model of the pelvis and abdominal region.
