Understanding CECT Orbit Head A & C
What is CECT Orbit Head A & C?
A CECT Orbit Head A & C or Contrast-Enhanced Computed Tomography scan of the head and orbit is an imaging method used to create cross-sectional images of the eye sockets (orbits), eyes, auditory bones, and surrounding bones. A beam of x-rays is used after injecting a contrast material to access and evaluate the regions of the bony and soft tissues in the head. These images assist physicians in detecting various disorders affecting the brain.
Exposure to high amounts of radiation during the scan can cause minor health effects such as skin bruising, irritation, and skin burns that usually subside within a few hours. An abnormal scan may indicate the presence of various underlying disorders such as tumors, fractures, or inflammatory obituary diseases.
