MRI Spine

 MRI of the Spine What happens during the scan of my Spine?

The exact technique depends upon the area of your spine we have been asked to examine.  If the 'Cervical Spine' is being examined, then you will need to lie on your back with a special aerial positioned around your neck, which is a little like having a hard collar on.  Once positioned, you will be driven into the scanner, head first and when you are ready your scan will begin.  For any other areas of the spine being examined, then you simply lie on a flat coil.

Please see MRI Scan for full details.
