How to diagnose Cervical Spondylosis

 

To evaluate and diagnose cervical spondylosis, the doctor may recommend radiological tests like :

  • X-ray of cervical (neck) region or spine, which shows the presence of degenerative changes and osteophyte formation, loss of disc level height and often a narrow spinal canal.

 

  • CT scan and Spine MRI which confirms the diagnosis.

 

  • Myelogram (X-ray or CT scan after injecting dye into the spinal column) to clearly identify the extent of injury.
