The Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan of the Cranio-Vertebral Junction (CVJ) is a diagnostic procedure where rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the Cranio-Vertebral Junction, which is the joint of the skull and the vertebral (spinal) column. These cross sectional images can then be used to create a complete three dimensional image of the craniovertebral junction.
Why Get Tested
- To assess the integrity of the cranio-vertebral junctio;
- To locate and diagnose fractures of the bones of this join;
- To detect and diagnose damage to the tendons and ligament;
- To perform the evaluation of a surgical procedure before and after the surger;
- To diagnose any suspected inflammation or infection of the cranio-vertebral junctio;
- To detect any congenital developmental anomalies of this join;
- To diagnose other conditions like Paget’s Disease, Down’s Syndrome, etc. in combination with other tests
- 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.
