CT Scan of the Spine

CT spine imaging is a diagnostic method that provides a detailed insight into the structure of the spine. This technique allows visualization of the cervical, thoracic, lumbosacral, and entire spine with an emphasis on bony structures, while MRI is used for visualizing the neural structures of the spine.

Advantages of spine imaging using CT include:

  • High resolution: CT scan allows high - resolution imaging with clear details of the bony structure of the spine.
  • Rapid diagnosis: the speed of CT scan makes this method efficient for emergency diagnostic cases.
  • Precise localization: physicians can accurately localize pathologies, facilitating treatment planning.
  • Minimal invasiveness: CT scan does not require invasive procedures, minimizing risks and discomfort for patients.
  • Postoperative scan: CT scan is not limited by metallic implants used in various surgical procedures, unlike MRI which is limited in patients with metallic implants.

CT scan of the spine is a crucial tool in diagnosing various spinal conditions. Detailed examination of the cervical, thoracic, lumbosacral, and entire spine allows physicians a comprehensive insight, which is crucial for timely and accurate patient therapy.
