Test Description

The Dorso-Lumbar CT Scan (Computerized Tomography) with contrast is a diagnostic procedure where a contrast material is injected either in the blood or directly into the cerebrospinal fluid, following which rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the dorsal and lumbar regions of the vertebral column. These cross sectional images can then be used to create a complete three dimensional image in which the vertebral bones, intervertebral disks and the surrounding soft tissues like muscle and ligaments are clearly visible. These images can be used to visibly identify any damage to the spinal column and diagnose a condition.

Why Get Tested

  1. To detect the cause of any unexplained back pain;
  2. To detect any fractures, inflammations, or infections of the vertebral bones not visible on a simple X-ra;
  3. To detect and diagnose the presence of 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 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.
