What is CT Coccygeal Spine?
The Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan of the coccygeal spine is a diagnostic procedure where rotating beams of X-rays are used to create cross sectional images of the coccyx, which is the final triangular bony projection at the end of the vertebral column. These cross sectional images can then be used to create a complete three dimensional image of the coccyx. This image can be used to visibly identify damage to the coccygeal part of the spinal column and diagnose a condition.
