Overview


What is NCCT Lumbar Spine?

Computed tomography (CT) or Computerized axial tomography (CAT scan) is a diagnostic imaging test used to create detailed images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels. The cross-sectional images generated during a  CT scan can be reformatted in multiple planes, and can even generate three-dimensional images which can be viewed on a computer monitor, printed  on film or   transferred to  electronic media.  CT scanning is often the best method for detecting many different cancers  since the images allow your doctor to confirm the presence of a tumor and determine its size and location. It is used to evaluate the spinal vertebrae and inter vertebral discs clearly. Sometimes, it can also be used for osteoporosis, tumors of spine and congenital anomalies of spine like scoliosis etc. It is a fast, painless, noninvasive and highly accurate test. 

Preparation 

Tell your doctor if there is a possibility that you are pregnant. Some allergic reaction to contrast medium can happen, like nausea, vomiting, irritation but that is treatable immediately. Avoid metal zips, studs, etc. A mild sedative may be required for those who may be particularly tense or anxious or even claustrophobic in the scanner room alone.
