Cervical Spine X-ray

Cervical Spine x-rays may be done to help find the cause of symptoms such as pain in the neck, shoulder, upper back or arm, tingling, numbness or weakness in the arm or hand. Fractures in the cervical vertebrae or dislocated joints can also be detected.

What to expect during the procedure:
• Cervical Spine x-rays are taken in a lying position and multiple images may be taken

General Preparation:
Please tell your physician and the technologist if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant. You will be asked to remove any clothing, jewelry, or other objects that may get in the way during the exam. If you are asked to remove clothing, you will be given a gown to wear.
