Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning has led to a tidal wave of referrals of cervical spine problems to neurosurgeons. However, in many cases, the problem is more apparent on the scan than clinical assessment. MRI scanning cannot replace thoughtful history taking and clinical examination, and does not provide the necessary information for diagnosis and treatment. […]

Most neck pain is due to degenerative changes that occur in the intervertebral discs of the cervical spine and the joints between each vertebra. Perhaps the most serious of the problems caused by degeneration of the spinal segment in the cervical spine is the condition of spinal stenosis. In the late stages of spinal degeneration, […]

A physician’s clinical diagnosis focuses on determining the source of a patient’s pain. For this reason, the clinical diagnosis of pain from a herniated disc is based on more than just the findings from a diagnostic test, such as an MRI scan or CT scan. Instead, the spine care professional arrives at a clinical diagnosis […]

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 (also called CT scan or a a computed axial tomography […]

The spinal column can show signs of wear, particularly in the elderly. Wear is a normal ageing phenomenon that occurs in everyone, even if the degree to which it occurs varies individually. This wear, also called osteoarthritis, is found in various joints such as the hip or the knee. As a reaction to osteoarthritis, the […]

Cervical radiculopathy is a disease process marked by nerve compression from herniated disk material or arthritic bone spurs. This impingement typically produces neck and radiating arm pain or numbness, sensory deficits, or motor dysfunction in the neck and upper extremities. Magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomographic myelography can confirm neurologic compression. The overall prognosis of […]

Clinical considerations are particularly important in the context of Cervical spine (C-spine) injury. This is because normal C-spine X-rays cannot exclude significant injury, and because a missed C-spine fracture can lead to death, or life long neurological deficit. Clinico-radiological assessment of spinal injuries should be managed by experienced clinicians in accordance with local and national […]

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the spine uses radio waves, a magnetic field and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the spine and surrounding tissues that are clearer and more detailed than other imaging methods. The exam does not use ionizing radiation and may require an injection of a contrast material called gadolinium, which […]
