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 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.
