How Much Does a Myelogram Cost?

A myelogram is a type of x-ray that uses contrast, which allows doctors to see the bones and fluid filled spaces between the bones of a person’s back.  Before the CAT scan and the MRI were introduced, the myelogram was considered the appropriate test used to examine the spinal canal and spinal cord to check if there was pressure on the spinal nerves from several factors.  Although, it is still used for very special purposes, a myelogram is no longer the first option doctors choose to determine if their patient has a herniated disc, an infection, a tumor, or a narrowing of the spinal canal due to arthritis.

During the myelogram test, a patient will undergo a special x-ray dye into their spinal sac.  It is performed by a doctor in a radiological facility or radiology department of a hospital.  This is not something that is normally done in a doctor’s office.
