Exams and Tests

Posterior Cervical Implants used in Spine Survery

Cervical implants, such as plates, rods and screws, are different types of spinal instrumentation spine surgeons may use during surgery to stabilize the neck and reduce pain.

Novel Radiation-Free Assessment of Scoliosis and the Cobb Angle

The Ortelius800® is a non-invasive radiation-free 3-D imaging system for the diagnosis and monitoring of scoliosis and other spinal deformities.

Cervical, Thoracic, Lumbar Discography Information

Discography confirms or denies the disc(s) as a pain source. Learn how the procedure is performed and its importance in planning spine surgery.

Lumbar (Low Back) Dynamic Stabilization - A Patient's Guide

Dynamic stabilization uses flexible materials to stabilize the spine if affected by degenerative changes.

Ultrasonography is Ultrasound Imaging Used to Help Diagnose Spinal Disorders

Ultrasonography, also called sonography or medical ultrasound, is a diagnostic test performed to help diagnosis the cause of neck or back pain and spine disorders.

Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) Tests

Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) tests may be an important part of a spine patient’s work-up by their doctor.

Bone Densitometry Exam DEXA

A bone densitometry exam, also known as a bone density test, bone mineral density test, or dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA) diagnose osteoporosis or osteopenia, and assess your risk for fracture.

Spinal Tests and Diagnosis Animation

Spinal x-rays, CT and MRI scans are imaging tests your spine doctor may order to confirm your diagnosis, the cause of your neck or back pain are explained in the video animation.

Electrodiagnostics Animation

Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) are types of electrodiagnostic tests explained in the video animation. Both EMG and NCV (sometimes called a nerve conduction study, NCS) may be performed to help diagnose the cause of back and/or neck pain.

Myelography Animation

Myelography is a test that produces a myelogram. The results can help diagnose a problem affecting your spine’s nerves or the spinal cord, such as myelopathy.

MRI Animation

MRI video animation demonstrates magnetic resonance imaging, a spinal diagnostic test that produces detailed images of the neck and back.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, is a powerful diagnostic tool that produces highly detailed images of the spine and other parts of your body.

Discography Animation

Discography video animation shows how a discogram may determine if a spinal disc is the cause your back pain and leg pain.

X-Rays Animation

X-ray video animation explains this first-line imaging study used to help diagnose the cause of back pain or neck pain.

SPECT Scan

A SPECT scan is an imaging technique that measures the emission of photons of a given energy from radioactive tracers introduced into the body.
