8 Possible Causes for Abnormal Lumbar Spine CT Scan

  • Spinal Stenosis

    PURPOSE: To investigate the association between pain sensitivity in the hand pre-surgery, and patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in function, pain and health pre- and post-surgery in patients with disc herniation or spinal stenosis. METHODS: This is a prospective cohort study with 82 patients. Associations between[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lumbar Disk Herniation

    Abstract Treatment of lumbar disk herniation must be tailored to the individual patient. Bed rest, physical therapy, comfortable positioning, manipulation, drug therapy, and if necessary, hospitalization all have a place in the treatment of the acute phase. A surgical decision should be made only after thorough[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lumbar Spinal Cord Tumor

    The lumbar spine x-ray film showed no bone abnormalities or disc space narrowing (Fig. I ).[healio.com] A CT scan starting at the lower half of the body of L3 and continuing through the upper sacrum showed a slight central bulge at the L5-SI level (Fig. 2). Fig. 1B.[healio.com]

  • Susceptibility to viral and mycobacterial infections

    Bone scan A three phase bone scan and spec-CT of the thoracic and lumbar spine showed widespread areas of abnormal uptake/ ‘hot spots’.[immunopaedia.org.za]

  • Mixed Connective Tissue Disease

    It was further evaluated with MRI thoracolumbar spine which reported abnormally distributed lower lumbar spine and thecal sac nerve roots demonstrating clumping ( figures[casereports.bmj.com] Figure 1 CT scan of thoracic spine: axial soft tissue window image (left) and sagittal reformatted image (right) demonstrating tram-like intrathecal calcifications (arrows[casereports.bmj.com] scan of thoracolumbar spine, which documented thoracic spinal cord arachnoid calcification ( figure 1 ) and raised concern for chronic adhesive arachnoiditis.[casereports.bmj.com]

  • Jaffe-Campanacci Syndrome

    After admission, all imaging examinations including lumbar plain radiography, CT, MRI, whole-body bone scan, and chest clairvoyance were carried out together with laboratory[austinpublishinggroup.com] There were tenderness and percussion pain over the L2-L4 lumbar spine.[austinpublishinggroup.com] No abnormality was detected by chest clairvoyance or abdominal ultrasonic examination. Laboratory results were either negative or within normal range.[austinpublishinggroup.com]

  • Osteopenia and Osteoporosis

    However, the standard test for measuring the density of bone and detecting osteopenia is a bone density test, either by CT scan of the lumbar spine (quantitative computed[emedicinehealth.com] The abnormally low bone mineral density (BMD) that is indicated by these methods describes osteopenia.[emedicinehealth.com]

  • Viral Meningitis

    It didn't show any abnormalities, so next a doctor performed a lumbar puncture - he inserted a needle into my spine and took a sample of the fluid.[dailymail.co.uk] A nurse looked me over; she wasn't sure if I'd had a brain bleed, but sent me for a CT scan to be on the safe side.[dailymail.co.uk]
