Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine (neck)

 

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine (neck)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine (neck) - it is one of the most promising and rapidly improving techniques of modern diagnostics. In this case, the doctor is able not only to investigate the structural and pathological changes, but also to assess the physico-chemical, pathophysiological processes of the cervical spine as a whole or its individual structures.

Defects of the spine occur more often in the cervical and lumbosacral spine. In the cervical region, along with oktsipitalizatsiey atlas vertebra, and I mix in relation to the vertebra II can be observed cervical fusion syndrome (Klippel File). During magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine vertebrae are shapeless bone mass. In these patients there is no neck (head lies directly on the trunk), limited mobility of the head, hairline low, there is a scoliosis or kyphoscoliosis.

Extension of the cervical rib syndrome may clinically manifest itself under the influence of adverse factors (cooling, trauma, infection). In many cases, additional cervical rib does not make themselves felt, and a casual finding during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine. Clinical manifestations of extension of the cervical ribs are characterized by neuralgic pains in the shoulder, which sometimes extend to the entire limb.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine provides a series of thin sections, to construct three-dimensional reconstruction of the study area, highlight the vascular network and even individual nerve trunks and blood vessels passing in the projection of the cervical spine.

This reconstruction provides invaluable assistance to the surgeon in planning surgery and for postoperative follow-up monitoring.

Early diagnosis using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of cervical spine pain or discomfort in the neck and occipital region allows early treatment of disease of the cervical spine and spinal cord at this level.

The possibility of using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine at the same time show itself spine and soft tissue around it over a large distance without the introduction of contrast agents, and without the use of ionizing radiation (X-ray) to determine the location and size of tumors, the cartilage surface of joints, muscles and tendons.

Currently, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine came in first place in the diagnosis of many diseases of the cervical spine, pushing into the background, methods such as X-rays and computed tomography (CT) of the spine.

In kaih cases may appoint a survey of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine:

Magnetic resonance imaging of the suboccipital muscles. Muscles at the level of the anterior arch of C1 vertebra (A): 1 - rectus capitis posterior minor, 2 - rectus capitis posterior major. Muscles at the middens level of C2 vertebra (B): 3 - longus colli/capitis, 4 - inferior oblique capitis, 5 - semispinalis cervicis/multifidus, 6 - semispinalis capitis, 7 - splenius capitis.

warning Attention! There are several sub-species or regimes of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), respectively, what you need, must be specified in writing (direction, out-patient card or record from the history of the disease) from a doctor. Do not try to go through this procedure without first consulting a specialist, so as not to harm your health!
