X-ray Lumbar Spine Extension

What is an X-ray Lumbar Spine Extension Test?

This examination employs X-rays to obtain pictures of the 5-vertebrae lumbar spine. This test is used to determine if the spine is unstable in spondylolisthesis, a condition that causes lower back discomfort. The patient is asked to lean back from the lower back for the extension view.

Why is it done? 

  • To identify spine tumors, arthritis, osteoporosis, or infections
  • To identify potential disc issues such as spondylolisthesis or disc degeneration.
