Please have a look at this:
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{pstricks,pst-node}
\begin{document}
\begin{equation*}
\psset{nodesep=5pt,%
linestyle=dotted,%
dotsep=1pt}
\begin{pmatrix}
1 & 2 & \rnode{1}{3}\\
4 & 5 & 6\\
7 & 8 & \rnode{3}{9}
\end{pmatrix}
\ncbar{<->}{1}{3}
\Aput[1pt]{\scriptstyle{-2}}
\end{equation*}
\end{document}
