Overview


What is MRI Cervico-Dorsal Spine?

An MRI cervical dorso spine creates images of the cervical and dorsal regions (neck and upper back region) of the vertebral column along with the surrounding soft tissues like muscles. 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 a detailed and clear 3D multiple images. The whole MRI scan procedure takes about 40-60 minutes.

  5. To diagnose any suspected osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of the joints)
  6. To diagnose cervical degenerative disc disease, neck pain, stiff neck
  7. To find out upper neck bones wear and tear or compression of intervertebral discs
