Overview Brief

Do you need to get an NCCT Left Foot done? This article will tell you all you need to know.

What is NCCT Left Foot?

NCCT Left Foot is a diagnostic tool that employs rotating X-ray beams along with a digital computer to create detailed cross-sectional images of the left foot.

NCCT stands for Non-Contrast Computed Tomography. During the NCCT Left Foot process, X-ray beams create two-dimensional images, termed slices, centered round a single axis of rotation. A digital computer then uses those images to create a 3D visualisation of the foot that allows the doctor to pinpoint the exact location of tumours, cysts, fractures, infections, bone defects, necrosis, and other disorders. NCCT Left Foot is non-invasive and painless, and hence the preferred method of medical imaging for the Foot.

How is NCCT Left Foot performed?

NCCT Left Foot is carried out in a CT scanning room.

  • The patient changes into a hospital gown and lies still on the table.
  • The table enters the CT scanner, which is a large rounded structure.
  • Rotating X-rays take images of the foot, which are then displayed on a cathode-ray tube [1].
  • The process may take several minutes.

Side effects/risks of NCCT Left Foot

While NCCT Left Foot is a non-invasive and safe technique, possible side effects include

  • Potential harm to foetuses in pregnant women.
  • Adverse impact on patients with pacemakers, neuro-stimulators or other such implants.
  • Minor risks from radiation exposure.
