A myelogram is a special X-ray examination of your spinal cord, spinal canal and the areas surrounding these structures. A special dye, called a contrast material, is injected into your spinal canal through a needle so that the area being studied will show up more clearly on the X-rays. A myelogram can identify abnormalities of your spinal cord, spinal anal and spinal nerves. Your doctor might want to use this test when other imaging procedures, such as a CT scan or MRI, have not provided enough information for an accurate diagnosis of your problem.
