What is CECT Hand?
Contrast Enhanced Computerized Tomography (CECT) scan of the hand 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 hand which can then be used to create a three dimensional image of the hand. These image are then used to assess hand anatomy and detect any associated clinical conditions.
Why is CECT Hand done?
- • To detect the fractures of the bones of the hand not visible on a simple X-ray • To detect the cause of any unexplained pain in the hand • To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the soft tissues like the muscle, the tendons and ligaments of the hand • To diagnose any suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of the joints) • To guide and monitor biopsy or the operative procedures
Preparation for CECT Hand
- 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.
