A CT scan can be performed of any part of the body that your doctor wishes to see, to help in diagnosis of a problem, to better define a known problem or to monitor for a change.
If we are looking at the soft tissues of the neck rather than the bones it is usually recommended that you have an injection of IV contrast.
You will be positioned on your back with your head resting in a small headrest and your head and neck will pass through the scanner.
Before your Scan
There is no preparation for a CT Neck.
