What is CT Cervico-Dorsal Spine?

The Cervico-Dorsal CT Scan or Computerized Tomography Scan is a diagnostic procedure where rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the cervical and dorsal regions (neck and upper back region) of the vertebral column. These cross sectional images can then be used to create a complete three dimensional image of the cervico-dorsal region of the spinal column where the vertebral bones, intervertebral disks and the surrounding soft tissues are clearly visible. This image can be used to visibly identify any pathological conditions of the spinal column.

Preparation for CT Cervico-Dorsal Spine

  • 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.

Why Get Tested for CT Cervico-Dorsal Spine?

  1. • To detect the cause of any unexplained back pain • To detect fractures, inflammations, or infections of the vertebral bones not visible on a simple X-ray • To detect and diagnose herniated disk, which is the commonest cause of back pain • To detect malformations or genetic defects (birth defects) during spinal development in children • To direct intervention procedures like fine needle biopsy • To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the soft tissues like muscle, and ligaments of the spine • To diagnose any suspected osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of the joints)
