What is MRI Lumbar Plexus?

An MRI lumbar plexus creates picture of the junction/network of nerves (provides nerves connection to knee, thigh, abdomen, calves, back and groin) and its surrounding soft tissues. The images captured during the MRI scan can be stored on an electronic device which is further printed on a film. The MRI scan is radiationless test which uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed and clear 3D multiple images. The whole MRI scan procedure takes about 40-60 minutes.

Why is MRI Lumbar Plexus done?

  1. To diagnose the cancer growth which can destroy the lumbar plexus
  2. To detect neuralgic amyotrophy (sudden malfunction of the brachial plexus due to swelling)
  3. To find out carcinomatous neuropathy which is congenital or by birth defects
  4. To detect pain, numbeness, paralysis in the lower back and leg
  5. To investigate femoral neuropathy (damaged peripheral nerve of femur) due to trauma (accident) or abdominal surgery

Preparation for MRI Lumbar Plexus

  • At the time of the MRI you might be asked to remove any metallic coins, jewelry, metal wrist watches, metallic keys, dentures or hearing aids as the MRI uses strong magnetic fields
  • Tell your radiologist if you have metallic implants like pacemaker, cochlear implants, aneurysm clips, neuro-stimulator, surgical staples/clips or drug implants
  • Pregnant women should inform their doctor about their pregnancy before going for MRI
