volume averaging

Started by krsears on 05/05/2010 5:06pm

After suffering from neck pain and headaches for about eight months and after taking way too much advil, I finally acknowledged that this problem wasn't going away by itself. My family physician ordered a CT scan and the results aren't exactly encouraging. Apparently there are several things going on that, according to the report, include bone spurs, arthritis, degenerative disc disease and "disc herniation at C-2 and C-3" , but thankfully no fractures. The term "volume averaging" is used when discussing "soft tissue density within the left root" but I don't know what either of those terms mean. I suppose I can ask my doctor eventually but I don't have an appointment anytime soon.

Does anyone know what this means in layman terms?

Idea; Look the term up at Mayo-Clinc.com
they provide all types of information on drugs procedures.
