What is MRI c v Junction?
An MRI CV junction creates a picture of the occiput (back part of the head), the foramen magnum (openeing through which nerves passes from brain to spine), upper cervical spinal cord 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 c v Junction done?
- To diagnose vertebral artery compression, cranial (brainbox) nerve compression and obstructive hydrocephalus (blockage of Cerebrospinal fluid) and syringomyelia
- To detect stenosis (narrowing of the foramen magnum), compression of the brain stem/spinal cord which leads to neckaches, headaches, neck aches
- To analyze neuron palsy (neuro-degenerative disease which leads to death of brain cells and decrease in brain volume
- To find out cancers like osteofibroma and chordoma
