What is NCCT Dorsolumbar Spine?
The Dorso-Lumbar NCCT (Non Contrast Computed Tomography) scan 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 are then used to create three dimensional image of the spinal column where the vertebral bones and the intervertebral disc are clearly visible. This image can be used to visibly identify and diagnose a disorder of the spinal column.
