A neck X-ray is a safe and painless test that uses a small amount of radiation to make images of the soft tissues in the neck. During the examination, an X-ray machine sends a beam of radiation through the neck, and an image is recorded on a special film. This image includes structures such as the vertebrae (neck bones), the soft tissue in front of the vertebrae, and the adenoids and tonsils when they're enlarged. It also shows the oral and nasal airways, the nasopharynx, part of the trachea and the epiglottis.


Why is X-ray - LAT NASOPHARYNX done ?

X-ray soft tissue nasopharynx lateral view is the most important investigations to show adenoid hypertrophy with the compromised nasopharyngeal airway.

Why is X-ray - LAT NASOPHARYNX ?

An X-ray (been used for decades) is an imaging test that uses small amounts of radiation to produce pictures of the organs, tissues, and bones of the body. It can help your doctor view the inside of your body without having to make an incision. This can help them diagnose, monitor and treat many medical conditions. Different types of X-rays are used for different purposes. An X-ray LAT NASOPHARYNX can help find the causes of common signs and symptoms such as pain, tenderness, swelling or deformity of the knee. It can also detect broken bones, dislocated joint or arthritis in the joint. After a broken bone has been set, the image can help determine whether the bone is in proper alignment and whether it has healed properly. Different parts of the body behave differently with X-rays. X-rays work because the body's tissues vary in density (thickness). Each type of tissue allows a different amount of radiation to pass through and expose the X-ray-sensitive film. For example, bones are very dense and most of the radiation is prevented from passing through to the film. As a result, bones appear white on an X-ray. Tissues that are less dense such as the lungs are filled with air and allow more of the X-rays to pass through to the film and appear on the image in shades of gray. There are some risks involved in getting an X-ray. But for most people, the potential benefits outweigh the risks.
