A whole spine MRI scan includes the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine sections. The spinal cord is also clearly visible during the examination.
Cervical spine MRI scan examines cervical spine pain, injuries, numbness radiating to the arm(s).
It can also help with headaches, dizziness, and tinnitus as their examinations so far have brought no results.
In case of suspected hernia or multiple sclerosis, examination with contrast agent is recommended. In all other cases, a native examination is sufficient.
Thoracic spine MRI examination with contrast agent is recommended for thoracic spine pain, injury, suspected hernia, and suspected multiple sclerosis.
