CT Dorso-Lumbar Spine

Test Description

Computed Tomography (CT) of the Dorso-Lumbar spine is an imaging procedure in which rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the lumbar region of the vertebral column, which can then be used to create a three dimensional image of the spinal column. In these images, the the vertebral bones, intervertebral disks and the surrounding soft tissues are clearly visible.

Why Get Tested

  1. To detect the cause of any unexplained lower back pain;
  2. To detect fractures, inflammations, or infections of the vertebral bones not visible on a simple X-ra;
  3. To detect and diagnose herniated disk, which is the commonest cause of lower back pai;
  4. To detect malformations or genetic defects during spinal development in childre;
  5. To direct intervention procedures like fine needle biops;
  6. To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the soft tissues like muscle, and ligaments of the spin;
  7. To diagnose any suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of the joints)

Precautions

  • Pregnant women should inform their doctor (and x-ray technician) as the radiations may affect the fetus. If needed, precautions can be taken to lower the radiation exposure to the fetus.
  • Depending on the area to be imaged, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown at the time of the X-ray.
