CECT is an abbreviation for Contrast-Enhanced Computed Tomography, also known as a CT scan with contrast. CECT (contrast-enhanced computed tomography) is an imaging diagnostic method that allows your doctor to see your internal organs and soft tissues in greater detail.
CECT Whole abdomen is a diagnostic imaging tool that produces detailed images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue, and blood vessels. Intravenous contrast dye is injected into the body during this test to provide a more detailed view of the blood vessels. It also aids in the diagnosis of biliary system problems (liver, pancreas, gallbladder, etc.).
CECT scanning is frequently regarded as the most effective method for diagnosing abdominal pain, suspected cancer, kidney or gall bladder stones, and infections. It also aids in the evaluation of any illness's treatment progress.
Doctors recommend this radiology scan to look for any underlying issues in the entire abdomen, such as:
* Abdominal discomfort * Suspected tumour * Cancer * Gall bladder stone * Kidney stone * Inflammation and infection
It is an accurate and dependable method for analysing abdominal problems because the images aid in detecting the presence of a tumour as well as determining its size and location.
Before the test, inform your doctor and the technician if you are pregnant or may be pregnant.
You must remove your jewellery and avoid wearing clothing with metal objects such as metal zips, studs, and so on that may interfere with your image.
Before proceeding with the procedure, have a blood urea and creatinine test performed to assess kidney function and ensure the safety of the contrast.
Eat or drink nothing but water for 8-12 hours before the test.
Although CT scans are a quick, painless, and reliable procedure that requires no special preparation.
Typically, a CT scanner is a large, donut-shaped machine with a short tunnel in the centre. You'll be lying on a narrow table that slides in and out of this small tunnel. The x-ray tube and electronic x-ray detectors are located opposite each other in a ring called a gantry, which rotates around you. A separate control room houses the computer workstation that processes the imaging data. This is where the technologist operates the scanner and observes your exam in close proximity. Using a speaker and microphone, the technologist will be able to hear and speak to you.
When you enter the CT scanner, special light lines may be projected onto your body. These lines assist in ensuring that you are in the proper position on the exam table. You may hear a slight buzzing, clicking, or whirring sound when using a modern CT scanner. These occur when the internal parts of the CT scanner, which are not normally visible to you, revolve around you during the imaging process.
Unless there are special circumstances, you will be alone in the exam room during the CT scan. For example, a parent wearing a lead shield may occasionally remain in the room with their child. The technologist, on the other hand, will always be able to see, hear, and speak with you via a built-in intercom system. A parent may be permitted in the room with a paediatric patient, but must wear a lead apron to minimise radiation exposure.
The technologist will remove your intravenous line following a CT scan. They will use a small dressing to cover the tiny hole made by the needle. You can resume your normal activities right away.
