Diagnostic Tests

The following two diagnostic tests are utilized as an integral part of IUCCA upper cervical protocol.

Paraspinal Digital Infrared Imaging

Paraspinal Digital Infrared Imaging is a non-invasive, painless, computerized, thermographic (heat-measuring) instrument. This state-of-the-art technology is used to detect irritation to the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and is performed by moving a sensitive scanning device along the sides of the spine.

Infrared scans assist in diagnosing spinal injuries and also aid in determining whether an individual's spine is misaligned or properly aligned during patient care.

Precision Laser Aligned X-ray

During an individual's initial examination, an accurate determination of the upper cervical vertebrae's position must be made. Because standard x-ray technology is inadequate for this purpose, Precision Laser Aligned X-ray is used. Unlike conventional equipment, laser-aligned equipment is meticulously adjusted for accuracy using laser technology and a specialized frame designed to maintain its alignment.
