What is CT Dorso-Lumbar Spine?
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.
