Overview Brief

Do you need to undergo a CECT Left Hip Joint? This article will tell you everything you need to know.

What is CECT Left Hip Joint?

CECT Left Hip Joint is a diagnostic procedure in which rotating X-Ray beams take cross-sectional images of the left hip region to identify any disorders.

CECT stands for Contrast-Enhanced Computed Tomography. In CECT Left Hip Joint, a contrast material is injected into the left hip joint and X-Rays move about a fixed axis of rotation to capture cross-sectional images. Subsequently, digital geometry processing is used to create a 3D image of the joint area, which can be used to identify any fractures, infections, inflammations, dislocations, tumors or other disorders [1]. It is a highly accurate and minimally invasive test and hence a preferred method of diagnosis.

How is CECT Left Hip Joint Performed?

CECT Left Hip Joint is performed in a designating CT scanning room.

  • The patient wears a hospital gown and lies on the examination table.
  • The contrast material is injected and the table enters the CT scanner.
  • Rotating X-Rays capture images of the flow of the material through the left hip joint area.
  • The images are converted into a 3D visualization that can be viewed on a computer.
