Test Details
Test Code:RA0157
Test Name:MRI Neck
Test Details & Preparation
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine is a safe and painless test that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed images of the cervical spine (the bones in the back of the neck).

An MRI differs from a CAT scan because it does not use radiation. An MRI scanner consists of a large doughnut-shaped magnet that has a tunnel in the centre. Patients are placed on a table that slides into the tunnel. Some centres have open MRI machines that have larger openings and are helpful for patients with claustrophobia.

During the examination, radio waves manipulate the magnetic position of the atoms of the body, which are picked up by a powerful antenna and sent to a computer. The computer performs millions of calculations, resulting in clear, cross-sectional black and white images of the body. These images can be converted into three-dimensional pictures of the scanned area. This helps pinpoint problems in the cervical spine when the scan focuses on that area.

MRI can detect a variety of conditions of the cervical spine as well as problems in the soft tissues within the spinal column, such as the spinal cord, nerves, and disks. This test is used to evaluate injuries of the seven cervical spine bones or spinal cord. Doctors also use it to assess the anatomy of the cervical spine help plan spinal surgery and monitor changes in the spine after an operation.

MRI of the cervical spine can be useful in evaluating problems such as pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in the arms, shoulder or neck area, and can help detect certain chronic diseases of the nervous system. It also can help diagnose tumours, bleeding, swelling, infections, or inflammatory conditions in the vertebrae or surrounding tissues.

A cervical spine MRI usually doesn't require any special preparation. However, the technician will have you remove any objects containing metal (such as eyeglasses and jewellery) because they can produce a bright or blank spot on the diagnostic film (but braces and dental fillings won't interfere with the scan). To obtain the highest quality MRI results, you will need to stay still during the scan.

MRIs are painless. You may have to lie still on the MRI table for 30-45 minutes during the procedure, but there are brief breaks between each scan.

The MRI images will be looked at by a radiologist who's specially trained in interpreting the scans. The radiologist will send a report to your doctor, who will discuss the results with you and explain what they mean. In most cases, results can't be given directly to the patient or family at the time of the test.
