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.
