MRI of the Spine

A doctor or physician may order an MRI scan of the back to take pictures of the spine. An MRI is useful because it shows healthcare providers what tissue is normal, and what tissue is not. Many organs in your body can be seen during a quality MRI of the spine, but depending on where you feel symptoms, only part of the spine may be imaged.

A quality MRI scan can show radiologists what may be causing your signs and symptoms and it’s important that you find the best machines and radiologists possible to receive the best imaging.

Reasons for a Spine MRI:

A spine MRI scan may be done to check for certain cancers or other illness. The MRI may show tissue that has cancer cells and tissue that does not have cancer cells.

A spine MRI can be used to guide doctors or surgeons during a procedure, such as a biopsy. An MRI scan may be used if surgery is needed to remove a growth or lump.

A MRI scan of the back can be used prior to performing an epidural injection to rule out the risk of injecting a steroid into a tumor or infection.

A MRI scan of the spine can show healthcare providers how well a treatment for a disease is working and the results of a quality MRI scan can help in the plan for the best treatment forward.
