MR Neurography

The Neurography Institute is a leading source in diagnosing and treating disabling nerve pain syndromes that develop after many types of trauma.

How does MR Neurography work?

Magnetic resonance neurography is the imaging of nerves through the use of magnetic resonance equipment.
But MR neurography is more than just placing a person underneath an MR machine and taking a picture.
MR Neurography is a patented process that requires specific MR equipment and patented configurations, skilled personnel to perform the imaging, computer-aided visual enhancements, and trained neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons to “read” (or knowledgeably interpret) the scans to properly identify issues and provide diagnoses and recommended courses of action.
The Neurography Institute is a leading licensed provider of MR neurography imaging. Patients and doctors should know that the quality of MR neurography can only be guaranteed by license under the patent.

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.
Sometimes, a compressed or pinched nerve is the problem. This is a perfect example of where an MR neurography scan from Neurography Institute may be helpful; an MR neurography scan can locate and depict the exact location where the nerve is irritated or injured.
Some of the more common reasons behind MR neurography scans are:
  • arm pain
  • hand pain
  • leg pain
  • foot pain
  • In many cases, these pains can be attributed to a spinal problem such as a herniated disk or bone spur. But just as often, the problems can be related to nerves distant from the spinal area. Considering nearly 100,000 spinal surgeries each year fail to help their respective patients, it’s important to consider steps such as MR neurography before invasive surgeries are ordered, to be absolutely sure of the problem.

    What is involved in having an MR neurography scan performed?

    If you’ve ever had an x-ray, CT scan, or even MRI scan, then you already know what an MR neurography is like.
    MR neurography scans are conducted under standard MR imaging scanners such as the one depicted here. You lay on a scanning table and your body is passed into the scanning station automatically (or, underneath the scanning magnet, depending on the physical design of the MRI scanner itself).
    The entire process can take as little as a matter of minutes, or as long as a half-hour or more, depending on the number of scans required.
    No injectable dyes are used and there is no pain and no ill after-effects whatsoever. The entire process is comfortable and completely without discomfort.
    Most important is that you receive your MR neurography scan from the world’s leading licensed source and pioneer in neurography imaging – The Neurography Institute. Because without a real MR neurography scan, your doctor will not be able to pinpoint the source of your condition and provide an effective course of action to resolve it.

    The leading source for MR neurography - The Neurography Institute.

    If you’ve ever had an x-ray, CT scan, or even MRI scan, then you already know what an MR neurography is like.
    The nerve scan centers of The Neurography Institute are licensed to perform MR neurography medical scans. If you are offered an “MR neurography” by anyone else, it will not include readings by industry professionals who helped invent the process.
    An MR neurography is more than just a medical scan. It is the collaboration between licensed scanning center, the patient, the patient’s referring physician, and the neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons of The Neurography Institute.
    It’s not only the technology that makes The Neurography Institute unique – it’s also the process by which your scan is processed and reviewed. Unlike most scanning centers, which simply “take a picture” and forward the results to your physician, The Neurography Institute provides in-depth analysis of your MR neurography so that your physician has all the information available to make an accurate diagnosis and craft an appropriate strategy.
    Once your MR neurography scan is completed at the affiliated nerve scan center, it is encrypted with HIPAA-compliant security and transmitted to The Neurography Institute for complex processing. The final step is a series of readings by authoritative neuroradiologists overseen by Dr. Aaron Filler, providing the referring physician (your doctor) and the patient (you) with the highest level of expertise and recommendations possible.
