What is an Cervical Spine AP View X-ray?
A Cervical Spine AP View x-ray is a type of xray that is used to get an imaging view of the neck region. It allows doctors to assess the anatomy and alignment of the cervical vertebrae and discs in order to detect any abnormalities or potential issues. The xray consists of two lateral x-rays taken at right angles to each other, which provides a comprehensive image of the entire cervical spine. This allows physicians to make an accurate diagnosis and provide the patient with the appropriate treatment plan. An accurate Cervical Spine AP View x-ray can be extremely useful in determining a patient's prognosis and overall health outcomes.
When is a Cervical Spine AP View X-ray prescribed?
A Cervical Spine Anteroposterior View xray is prescribed when a physician suspects neurological involvement. This xray provides the most comprehensive view of the cervical vertebrae when evaluating for alignments, fractures, or abnormalities. It can also help to identify any misalignments in the spine that could be causing pinched nerves or other nerve issues. As part of a multi-faceted approach, this xray can be an important tool for diagnosing and treating neck and back pain.
