Understanding X - Ray Dorsolumbar Spine AP Standing View in Secunderabad

What is X - Ray Dorsolumbar Spine AP Standing View in Secunderabad?

An X-ray Dorsolumbar spine AP (anteroposterior) standing view is visualization of the thoracic and lumbar spinal column (vertebral bones of the lower back), the intervertebral discs, and the tissue and skin surrounding the spinal area. This X-ray is done to identify any fracture, injury, lower back pain cause, intervertebral disc problems like degeneration, dislocation, herniation, or abnormal spine curvature.

The black and white image produced on a special X-ray film will be read by a radiologist. This will help determine your course of treatment. Medically, it is indicated if you have severe back pain or injury, fractures, or arthritis affecting your lower back. It is a safe procedure with minimal radiation exposure. Advantages are that it is painless, cheap, and simple and usually takes less than 15 minutes.
