Why would I need an MR Neurography scan?
Any time your physician suspects you are suffering from a nerve-related ailment, chances are good that an MR neurography scan can help determine if this diagnosis is correct. Moreover, in the event the diagnosis is accurate, an MR neurography scan can help your physician pinpoint the location of the issue and thereby craft a course of action that will have a much greater success rate.
Not every pain is due to a nerve problem. In many cases, the nerves are working perfectly and the pain is your body’s way of telling you there is a problem with a tissue inside. Think of a sprained ankle, broken bone or stomach ache — the pain lets you know something is wrong.
