Cervical Spine MRI

Cervical Spine MRI

Magnetic 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 cervical spine is used in the evaluation of patients that have neck pain wither 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, nerve impingement, degenerative facet arthritis resulting in headaches, and in excluding 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 cervical spine appointment, call 1-855-435-4836 or visit Elite MRI of Michigan www.elitemriofmichigan.com.

      Thank you for the question. This is just normal fat that will be present at the base of the neck and top of the thoracic spine. I assure you this is a normal finding and something that we see in most patients.
