How Much Will It Cost For Head X Ray
Sometimes: But not very often. With x-rays, the accepted technique is to have the smallest views possible so as to not give excess x-ray to the patient. This results in most of the neck not being seen in a head x-ray study. The neck is also a complex area of the body, and tumors in the neck are much better seen with a CT or MRI study with contrast injected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes but ...: You always have to ask why is any given test being done? What is being searched for? Is this the best way to do it or is there a better way to get the answer?

Dentists compare dental x-Ray radiation with radiation you get everyday. Problem is that dental radiation is concentrated to your head.........
No comparison: Dental x-rays do concentrate in the area the beam is pointed, that is true. However the damaging effects of radiation are cumulative. Spending a day at the beach will expose you to more radiation over a larger area of your body than having dental x-rays once a year. A lead apron with a thyroid collar is also used to protect your body when taking dental x-rays. As the cliche goes, apples to oranges ...Read more

The small plantar spur that is found in many patients and may or may not ever be of consequence. The issue is whether or not these symptoms are somehow linked to any symptoms. It would be interesting to know why the x-ray was taken in the first place. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Everytime I swallow my neck contracts one side and gets stiff last few months. ENT normal. Head is even and X-ray cervical normal. Can it be dystonia?
Possibly: I assume by "ENT normal" you have been evaluated by an ENT with a full head & neck exam and fiberoptic laryngoscopy? A barium esophagram may also be helpful given the association with swallowing. Assuming all normal, I would see a neurologist who specializes in movement disorders. Botox injections can be helpful in cervical dystonia. Deep brain stimulation is also showing promise in severe cases. ...Read more
I am curious about a Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor lining my neck vertebra up according to a X-ray it was not aligned nor was my head on straight due to the atlas. I am sceptic and was needing guidance.

Blood in Sputum: May be hard to find source, as bleeding is not constant. Three sources: upper airway, lower airway, and digestive. A complete upper airway endoscopy can be performed by an ENT to look for upper sources. But, it may be "normal" between episodes. My routine: chest x-ray, upper airway endoscopy, and depending upon risk factors, esophagogastroduodenoscopy (look into esophagus and stomach). See an ent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
