Lumbar Spine Disorders

Many lumbar spinal problems can be accurately diagnosed and treated using conventional imaging tests such as the MRI, the CT myelogram or X-rays.

However, all too often the results come up negative. You’ve got back pain – sometimes with extra pain spreading down your leg, but the doctors say they can’t find anything to fix.

MR neurography may provide the answers you’re looking for. Here’s why.

Standard imaging methods show the disk and bones. They also are excellent for seeing neural tissue inside the spine.

The problem is that most imaging methods go “blind” as soon as the spinal nerves start to leave the spine.

Here’s where the territory of MR neurography begins. Spinal nerves can be pinched or chafed just outside the spine and problems of this sort are completely invisible on standard images.

For this reason, many of the leading spine surgeons use MR neurography to evaluate their most difficult cases.

What if you already had spine surgery but the results were not all that helpful? MR neurography is one of the best methods for examining the area of previous spine surgery to try to find what went wrong and what needs to be fixed.
