Do you need to get a CECT Scan Orbit Axial Coronal done? Read on to find out all about it.
What is CECT Scan Orbit Axial Coronal?
CECT Scan Orbit Axial Coronal is a diagnostic procedure that is conducted to visually study and detect any disorders in the eyes, orbits, and the associated tissues.
In the CECT (Contrast Enhanced Computerised Tomography) test, a contrast material is injected to generate a three-dimensional figure of the eye as well as its bony and tissue surroundings. This image can be used to identify any fractures, foreign particles inflammation, infection, diseases in the muscles/blood vessels or any abnormal growths .
How is CECT Scan Orbit Axial Coronal performed?
The CECT Scan Orbit Axial Coronal is performed by a specialist in a sterilized lab.
- The patient is required to put on a hospital gown and sit still.
- A local anesthetic may be applied before the contrast material is inserted .
- With the help of the contrast chemical, rotating X-rays generate cross-sectional images of the eyeball socket including the soft tissues around it.
- These images together make a three-dimensional image of the eye area.
Side effects/risks of CECT Scan Orbit Axial Coronal
The risks of CECT Scan Orbit Axial Coronal can be stated as follows.
- A risk to the fetus due to the radiation from the X-rays.
- Adverse reactions to the contrast material injected.
Preparations before performing CECT Scan Orbit Axial Coronal
Certain prior preparations will ensure that CECT Scan Orbit Axial Coronal happens safely.
- Radiologists should be informed of pregnancies in the patients so that the quantity of radiation the fetus is exposed to is reduced.
- Blood, creatinine, and urea tests need to be conducted prior to the scan to make sure that the contrast material is safe for injection.
- Spectacles or any other metal objects that could hamper the imaging process must be removed.
Post-care after CECT Scan Orbit Axial Coronal
No special post-care is needed for CECT Scan Orbit Axial Coronal beyond rest and straining the eye as little as possible.
