Overview Brief

X-Ray of the cervical spine in lateral view is the radiology that helps to find out minor injuries on the neck faced by the patients as a result of fall.

What is X-Ray Cervical Spine Lateral View?

Generally,  X-Ray Cervical Spine LAT View is done to determine minor damages. Computed tomography (CT) is the more commonly used method of radiology to scan the neck for injuries. But X-Ray Cervical Spine LAT View provides a deeper depth to the scan for the minor fractures. This is usually performed in the setting of trauma. It is a lateral projection of the cervical spine. With the advancement of technology, X-Ray Cervical Spine LAT View has been replaced in all but some hospitals.
