CECT HRCT Temporalbone Axial Coronal

Overview Brief

The CECT HRCT Temporal Bone Axial Coronal scanning is used to replicate the image of one’s temporal bone and is crucial in finding tumors. [1]

What is CECT HRCT Temporal Bone Axial Coronal?

The CECT HRCT Temporal Bone Axial Coronal scanning is a high-resolution scan of the temporal bone to check for any injuries or bone abnormalities.

The CECT HRCT Temporal Bone Axial Coronal technique makes use of high-frequency reconstruction algorithms and thin slice thickness to recreate the images of the temporal bone. [2]

CECT HRCT Temporal Bone Axial Coronal scan is performed with the help of a multidetector CT scanner to capture the thin sectional images which are later reconstructed on axial and coronal planes.

How is CECT HRCT Temporal Bone Axial Coronal performed?

The CECT HRCT Temporal Bone Axial Coronal scan is performed in the following manner:

  • A contrast dye is injected through the IV.
  • The patient’s head is positioned in the holder.
  • The scan is done in two positions, one of which has the patient lying on the back and other on their stomach.

The scan takes about 30 minutes, after which the images are reconstructed to be studied further. [3]
