291 Possible Causes for Cervical Spine X-Ray

  • Arnold Chiari Malformation

    Plain X-ray of the skull and cervical spine will show skeletal abnormalities like scoliosis. CT scan demonstrates caudal displacement of the fourth ventricle.[patient.info]

  • Cervical Spine Fracture

    Standard x-ray films taken at emergency department facilities are not entirely reliable for detecting or revealing cervical spine fracture-dislocations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] During the study period, 254 cervical spine plain X-ray and 3,080 cervical spine CT examinations were performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The trauma series falsely identified 23% of the patients as having normal cervical spines, half of whom had unstable cervical injuries. [ 9 ] The addition of special x-ray[circleofdocs.com]

  • Dermatitis

    We performed a cervical spine X-ray in different projections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In all patients, we observed a degenerative disease of the cervical spine with a reduction of intersomatic discs, primarily C5-C6 (Figure 3).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Teardrop Fracture of the Cervical Spine

    The normal cross-table lateral cervical spine X-ray must visualise the entire cervical spine, from the skull base to the cervico-thoracic junction.[trauma.org] Radiographic Anatomy - Cervical Spine Lateral neck X-ray[pinterest.de] Next, examine the alignment of the columns of the cervical spine.[trauma.org]

  • Fracture

    And once closed reduction was confirmed by open-mouth and lateral X-ray views in the cervical spine, a second staged C1-C2 surgical fixation and fusion with iliac bone graft[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Platybasia

    Relevant diagnostic work-up included craniogram, cervical spine x-ray, computed tomography (CT) of the brain and craniocervical junction, magnetic resonance imaging of the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Scoliosis

    When a doctor measures it on an x-ray, the normal range for kyphosis is quite broad, between 20-50 degrees.[back.com] A side-view X ray of a soldier standing rigidly at attention would show the cervical spine in his neck arched slightly forward.[healthychildren.org] For the side x-rays, hips and knees must be straight. Focused x-rays of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine may also be necessary.[srs.org]

  • Arthritis

    Importantly, cervical spine instability is most often asymptomatic.[merckmanuals.com] Examples of Rheumatoid Nodules Diagnosis Clinical criteria Serum rheumatoid factor (RF), anti-CCP, and ESR or C-reactive protein (CRP) X-rays Rheumatoid arthritis should be[merckmanuals.com]

  • Head Injury

    Skull X-rays have largely been superseded by CT scanning. See separate article Plain Skull X-ray.[patient.info] Investigations for the cervical spine Always consider the possibility of cervical spine injury in cases of head injury. [ 2 ] CT of the cervical spine should be undertaken[patient.info] Plain X rays are abnormal or technically inadequate. A definitive diagnosis is needed - eg, before surgery.[patient.info]

  • Whiplash Injury

    At baseline, features of injury mechanism, subjective complaints, and different aspects of patient history were documented and cervical spine X rays performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of cervical spine, anterior–posterior, lateral, and open-mouthed view May need specialized imaging Non-opioid analgesics NSAIDs Opioids for a limited period in acute severe[academic.oup.com] Persistent neck pain and stiffness also occurs in cervical spondylosis and other chronic pathologies of the cervical spine.[boneandspine.com]
