Advanced Open MRI Scanner for

L-Spine MRI

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is recommended when excruciating back pain refuses to respond to standard medication and debilitates an individual. The scan gives a detailed picture of internal structures of the back that includes the spinal cord, the vertebrae, the discs, and the spaces between the vertebrae through which the nerves pass. This allows physicians to diagnose the musculoskeletal and neurological disorders which are responsible for the condition and initiate proper treatment.

The advanced open MRI scanner for lumbar spine MRI can confirm or rule out some of the following conditions:

  • Herniated lumbar disc
  • Sprain and strain
  • Lumbar spine arthritis
  • Lumbar stenosis (narrowing of spine)
  • Low back pain
  • Transverse myelitis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Tumors
  • Cancer

Depending on the study, the duration of MRI scan can take from 25 to 30 minutes, after which the patient can resume normal activity.

The Open MRI scanner at HealthQuest is patient friendly and quite safe when compared to other diagnostic modalities. It has a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to render multiple sets of pictures of the soft tissues and bones in varying depth and angles. Some of the advantages of MRI are as follows:

  • Safe and uncomplicated scan
  • No risk of radiation
