Overview

The CECT Head and Orbit Axial examination is conducted to have a detailed view of the orbits or the eye socket and the skull.

What is CECT Head and Orbit Axial?

The CECT Head and Orbit Axial is performed after injecting contrast or dye made of iodine. The use of contrast enables the radiologists and ophthalmologists to clearly view the soft tissues in the head and the orbit. Doctors can locate any congenital defects in the head and the orbit region, diagnose stroke and trauma, internal bleeding, and diseases using the CECT Head and Orbit Axial test.

How CECT Head and Orbit Axial is Performed?

The CECT Head and Orbit Axial test involves the following steps:

The patient has to lie down on the CT examination table.

The examination table will slide in and out of the CT scanner.

The patient will be injected an intravenous contrast through the cannula.

The initial scout images are taken to map the area for testing.

Once the area is mapped, the CT scanner takes a series of images of the head and the orbital axis
