Computed Tomography (CT) fractures, disk disease, neoplastic disease, spina bifida, spondylolisthesis, spondylolysis
Bone Densitometry Osteoporosis due to long-term steroid use, hyper-parathyroidism, estrogen deficiency, advancing age, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, alcoholism

Nuclear Medicine a radiopharmaceutical-tagged tracer element is injected that concentrates in areas of increased bone activity, demonstrating a 'hot spot' in the image
