Test Preparation
  1. 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
  2. Tell your radiologist if you have metallic implants like pacemaker, cochlear implants, aneurysm clips, neuro-stimulator, surgical staples/clips or drug implants

  4. Get the blood urea and creatinine test done to evaluate kidney function and to ensure safety of contrast before taking up the procedure.

Overview


What is MRI Cervico-Dorsal Spine With Contrast?

A Cervico-Dorsal Spine MRI creates images of the section of the spine that goes through the neck area (cervical spine) to the bottom of the rib cage using energy from powerful magnets (dorsal spine). The MRI scan creates detailed and crisp 3D multiple pictures to identify disorders in the soft tissues of the spinal column, such as the spinal cord, nerves, disks, and diseases of the cervical spine.


Before the test, a contrast dye is injected into a vein to assist the doctor in examining the area more clearly. MRIs are safe because low-energy radio waves do not emit radiation, minimal health hazards have been linked to the magnetic field or radio waves.

Why is MRI Cervico-Dorsal Spine With Contrast done?

  1. To detect the cause of any unexplained back pain
  2. To detect fractures, inflammations, or infections of the vertebral bones not visible on a simple X-ray
  3. To detect and diagnose herniated disk, which is the commonest cause of back pain
  4. To detect malformations or genetic defects (birth defects) during spinal development in children
  5. To detect any infection, injury or inflammation of the soft tissues like muscle, and ligaments of the spine
  6. To diagnose any suspected osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of the joints)
  7. To diagnose cervical degenerative disc disease, neck pain, stiff neck
  8. To find out upper neck bones wear and tear or compression of intervertebral discs
  9. To detect any dislocation of the craniovertebral junction (CVJ) or fracture of the upper cervical vertebral bones
  10. To determine presence of tumor/cyst/abnormal mass growth originating from cervical bones or its surrounding soft tissues.
