Upper cervical x-rays, an integral part of upper cervical protocol, provide an accurate determination of the upper cervical spine's position. The three-dimensional views are taken at six different angles to enable precise bio-mechanical analysis of the upper cervical vertebrae's displacement. From the x-ray analysis, Dr. Elster determines a specific vector for the upper cervical adjustment in each patient's case.
Dr. Elster has arranged for x-ray exams to be performed at Maui Diagnostic Imaging at their Kahului Triangle Square location - 425 Koloa Street #102. Every effort is made to keep x-ray exposure to a minimum, including the use of digital x-ray equipment.
