Usually a reason: and it's usually a questionable finding at the lower cervical , high thoracic level....whatever it is it's a RADIOLOGIST'S decision which has to be "honored" ...BTW ASK QUESTIONS of your PROVIDERS whoever they are..you have the RIGHT to decide what tests you wish to have and you should hear the REASONS for these tests no matter who "orders" them! My opinion only Dr Z
