Myelogram is examination of.. Lumber

Myelogram is examination of:

  • A- Pelvic.
  • B- Skull.
  • C- Lumber.
  • D- Bladder.

Myelogram is an examination of the C. Lumber (and sometimes cervical and thoracic) spine, not the options you listed.

A myelogram uses a contrast dye injected into the spinal canal to visualize the spinal cord, nerve roots, and surrounding structures on an X-ray or CT scan. It helps diagnose conditions affecting these structures, such as:
  • Herniated discs.
  • Spinal stenosis.
  • Tumors.
  • Infections.
While it may involve imaging the lumbar spine, myelograms are not used for the pelvis, skull, or bladder.

Other Options:

Here's a breakdown of the listed options:

A. Pelvic:

Pelvic ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI are more commonly used for examining the pelvis.

B. Skull:

X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs are used for examining the skull, not myelograms.

D. Bladder:

Cystoscopy or bladder ultrasound are more suitable for examining the bladder.
