MRI scan

Procedure type


An MRI scan is one of the most useful investigations in the spine. As they work by visualising water all tissue including discs and bone are seen. This is a big advantage over x-rays. They allow a non-invasive way of investigating the spine. The interpretation of scans is the most important part and should be done with the patient present to allow analysis against individual symptoms.

What happens during this procedure?

An investigation of the architecture of the spine.

How long does it take?

It takes about 20 minutes per area of the spine.

What are the risks?

There are no known risks.
