What is Myelogram?
A Myelogram is a diagnostic technique done to detect problems involving the spinal canal. It is done along along with an X-ray, CT, or MRI scan. A contrast dye is used to identify where the defect lies. Vertebral anomalies, spinal root problems, spinal cord problems, neural anomalies, pain involving the lower back, disc irregularities, nerve root problems and more can be diagnosed with the help of a myelogram. Under high-definition radiological imaging, the course of this dye is viewed. Many patients
show up with lifestyle-related lower back issues. A myelogram can also be suggested after a recent surgery to check for iatrogenic abnormalities if any.
