CT Myelogram

Myelography is a diagnostic test which can be performed to assess structures within the spinal canal, including the spinal cord and spinal nerves. A myelogram may be performed to assess for compression of a spinal nerve, or the spinal cord in the lumbar (lower) spine or cervical spine (upper spine and neck). The same test can also be used to search for the location of suspected leaks of cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) from the spine into the surrounding tissues.



Located in the heart of Bloomsbury, we are Central London's only dedicated neuroimaging facility.



Our CT services are accredited under the Quality Standard for Imaging, and fully recognised by all major UK-based insurers. Self-pay prices are available upon request.

Specialist team


You're in safe hands with our highly experienced specialist neuro-radiology consultants and neuroradiographers.

At The Queen Square Imaging Centre, we perform Myelography using a Computed Tomography (CT) scanner, so that we can obtain very detailed cross-sectional images of the spine and provide your doctor with the most accurate results.

A CT Myelogram is an examination which provides detailed information about your spinal cord and spinal nerves. To show these structures on detailed CT scan images, an x-ray contrast dye is injected into the fluid-filled space around the spinal cord. This contrast dye outlines the various structures in the spinal canal so that they are seen more easily on the CT scan.
