Explanation of terms written in CT Scan Prescription?
You doctor will generally specify if you need a non contrast CT scan or CT scan with contrast. Non contrast CT is referred to as NCCT.CT Scan with contrast is called CECT which is short for contrast enhanced CT.
If you have been prescribed an NCCT, it is a straight forward process, where your body part to be scanned goes through a hole shaped machined. This machine is CT Scan machine which takes the detailed x ray images of the body part to be tested.
If you need CECT, then a contrast agent will be given to you before the scan. The contrast agent goes into your body and interacts with the CT Scan rays to produce enhanced images. Sometimes, your doctor will need these enhanced images to do proper assessment.
If you are undergoing a Chest CT, then the prescription may say HRCT. This is the short for high resolution CT.Do not worry, as most of our labs can do HRCT Chest for you.
