What is CT CVJ?
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 is CT CVJ done?
- • To assess the integrity of the cranio-vertebral junction • To locate and diagnose fractures of the bones of this joint • To detect and diagnose damage to the tendons and ligaments • To perform the evaluation of a surgical procedure before and after the surgery • To diagnose any suspected inflammation or infection of the cranio-vertebral junction • To detect any congenital developmental anomalies of this joint • To diagnose other conditions like Paget’s Disease, Down’s Syndrome, etc. in combination with other tests
