How can the radiologist tell if you have mild facet joint arthropathy on a CT scan?

In brief: CT scan is best

Ct scanning is the best way to delineate bony pathology/anatomy anywhere in the body at this time.
It allows a radiologist the ability to look at the bones and joints in 3 d, so it is more sensitive than a 2 d xray in picking up even the most mild abnormality.
