Overview


What is X - Ray Neck AP LAT View?

A neck AP LAT view X-ray helps to visualize your seven (collar bones) cervical vertebrae. Alternate to this it also helps to show vocal cords, tonsils, adenoids, trachea, (windpipe) and epiglottis (tissue flap covering windpipe during swallowing). Dense structures such as the bones, appear white and softer body tissues, such as the skin and muscles appear darker. The actual exposure time to radiation is usually less than a second, although the overall test may take 15-20 minutes.

Why is X - Ray Neck AP LAT View done?

  1. To find out the neck injury, regular neck numbness, neck pain, weakness in arms
  2. To detect fractured neck bones, dislocated neck joints, swelling in windpipe
  3. To diagnose (bone thinning) osteoporosis, neck bone tumor/cyst, injury on disks and joints of neck (cervical spondylosis)
  4. To determine spinal deformities, vocal cord region swelling (croup), epiglottitis, tonsillitis, adenoids and tracing the blockage in the throat region due to foreign objects
