Magnetic Resonance Imaging – MRI - Spine

What is MRI Spine?

Magnetic Resource Imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to form pictures of the anatomy and the physiological processes of the body in both health and disease. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields and radio waves to generate detailed images of the body. The detailed images help the doctor to find changes in the spine and other tissues. They also help in detecting problems such as infection.

MRI looks at the spine in the neck – cervical, thoracic (upper back), or lumbosacral (lower back). The whole spine appears in one series and the pictures can be analysed to detect if tumour is there. Medanta is among a few top hospitals in India possessing the latest technology in MRI called the 3 TESLA and 1.5 Tesla MRI Machines.
