What is NCCT Face?
Non Contrast Computed Tomography (NCCT) of face is an imaging procedure in which the rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the face which can then be used to create a three dimensional image of the face. This image can be used to visibly assess facial anatomy and detect problems.
Why is NCCT Face done?
- • To detect the fractures of the facial or jaw bones • To determine problems of the eyes, bones around the eyes, and optic nerves • To detect disorders or diseases affecting the air-filled cavities of bones around the nose called sinuses • To detect and diagnose diseases affecting the facial or jaw bones like Paget’s Disease • To plan interventional and reconstructive procedures of the face
Preparation for NCCT Face
- 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.
