Lumbar Spine MRI

lumbar-spineMagnetic resonance imaging uses a strong magnetic field, radio waves, and a computer to produce high resolution images of the area of the body that is being examined.  A MRI of the lumbar spine is used in the evaluation of patients that have low back pain due to an acute injury or chronic wear and tear.  The exam can be performed without contrast and it is effective in the evaluation of disc herniation, spinal stenosis, degenerative facet arthritis, and in excluding non-displaced compression fractures.   Intravenous contrast may be given to patients if they have persistent pain following prior surgery to evaluate for scaring or in patients with a history of cancer to exclude cancer metastasis.   To schedule your MRI of the lumbar spine appointment at one of our convenient locations in Auburn Hills or Waterford, call 1-855-435-4836 or visit Elite MRI of Michigan
