I had a flat panel xray of my thoracic and lumbar spine which came back looking good, some slight bulging discs but nothing big. Now I had a flex/extension xray done while I was trying to arch back and bend forward. Do any of you have insight into that type of imaging? Wondering if it will show anymore than the flat panel did? Then they are talking about possible bone scan. Wondering if that will give insight?
By bone scan do you mean a DEXA? The flex X-ray is to look at your spine from a different point of view and whether or not that pairing affects certain parts of the spine. It especially helps with looking at facet joints as well
Oregonhomestead, I have facet spondylosis they saw on that type of xray. And the dexa scan shows osteopenia, likely due to 1) genetics (my mom had osteoporosis) & 2) steroid injection blocks + asthma steroids.
I'm not sure, he said bone scan with injected radiation...?? I saw the list, thank you Reece. He said its around 40xs the radiation as an xray but less than a CT .. I'm sorry, I Got confused in replying to posts... I think this question was for me??😁
I'm not either luckily but my friend is on Ritalin and i noticed that she had a lot of mood swings when eating chocolate so i looked it up! :) (That's just one of my ADHD friends on Ritalin the rest are fine with chocolate)
