Affordable Back MRI or Spine MRI

What are some common uses of the procedure?

MR imaging of the spine is performed to:

  • assess the spinal anatomy and alignment.
  • detect congenital anomalies of vertebrae or the spinal cord.
  • assess intervertebral disk disease (degenerated, bulging or herniated) and intervertebral joint disease, both frequent causes of severe lower back pain and sciatica (back pain radiating into a leg).
  • assess compression of spinal cord and nerves.
  • help plan spinal surgical procedures, such as decompression of a pinched nerve or spinal fusion.
  • monitor changes in the spine after an operation, such as scarring or infection.
  • guide the injection of steroids to relieve spinal pain.
  • explore other possible causes of back pain (compression fracture, for example).
  • image spinal infection or tumors that arise in, or have spread to, the spine.
  • assess inflammation of the spinal cord or nerves.
