Overview


What is CECT Chest Extended?

The CECT (Contrast-Enhanced Computed Tomography) Chest Extended is an imaging technique that helps obtain detailed images of the chest and the thorax. A contrast material is injected into the veins, and a rotating beam of X-ray creates a detailed image of the organs and their surrounding regions. This procedure helps identify any blockages, injuries, infections, tumors, hemorrhage in the thorax, or unexplained pain in the chest. It also helps diagnose diseases related to the internal organs, such as the heart, lungs, rib cage, food pipe, and spine.


The CECT Chest Extended procedure lasts for around 30-60 minutes. However, the actual test lasts for just a few minutes. Patients are advised not to eat solid foods four hours before the test and to drink only fluids.
