X-ray is a safe and painless test that uses a small amount of radiation to make an image of a person's bones. During the examination, an X-ray machine sends a beam of radiation through the spine, and an image is recorded on special X-ray film. X-Ray of the cervico dorsal spine visualizes the cervical and the thoracic vertebraes. This helps in evaluating any injury to the spine and also to diagnose pain in the upper back.


Why is X-ray - AP CERVICO DORSAL SPINE done ?

X-ray - AP CERVICO DORSAL of the spine may be performed to evaluate any area of the spine. The most common views are poster anterior, anteroposterior, and lateral. In posterier anterior (PA) view, the x-ray source is positioned so that the x-ray beam enters through the posterior (back) and exits out of the anterior (front), where the beam is detected. To obtain this view, the patient stands facing a flat surface behind which is an x-ray detector. In anteroposterior (AP) views, the positions of the x-ray source and detector are reversed: the x-ray beam enters through the anterior aspect and exits through the posterior aspect. AP are harder to read than PA x-rays and are therefore generally reserved for situations where it is difficult for the patient to get an ordinary chest x-ray, such as when the patient is bedridden. Lateral views are obtained in a similar fashion as the poster anterior views, except in the lateral view, the patient stands with both arms raised and the side of the chest pressed against a flat surface. Oblique view are projection taken with the central ray at an angle to any of the body planes. It is described by the angle of obliquity and the portion of the body the X-ray beam exits; right or left and posterior or anterior. Right or left as stated above indicates the portion of the body the X-ray beam exits. The axillary view is useful for detecting anterior or posterior dislocations that are not evident in the AP view.

Why is X-ray - AP CERVICO DORSAL SPINE ?

X-Ray Dorso ventral Spine can help them diagnose, monitor and treat many medical conditions. Different types of X-rays are used for different purposes. An X-ray can help find the causes of common signs and symptoms such as pain, tenderness, swelling or deformity.In this view, the beam enters the dorsal surface and exits the ventral surface. This is the standard position for small animal thoracic cavity images with the patient in the sternal recumbency (back upwards, abdomen on table).
