Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)  

Non-invasive imaging using magnetic fields

NECK MRI

MRI Neck refers to a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan that focuses on the neck region. It is a non-invasive technique that uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create detailed images of the structures in the neck, including the cervical spine, lymph nodes, salivary glands, blood vessels, and soft tissues.

  • Here are some reasons why your doctor may recommend an MRI Neck:

    1. Evaluation of neck pain: If you are experiencing persistent neck pain, an MRI Neck can help identify the cause. It can provide detailed images of the cervical spine, including the discs, vertebrae, and surrounding soft tissues, allowing your doctor to assess for possible injuries, degenerative changes, herniated discs, or other structural abnormalities.
    2. Assessment of neck masses or tumors: An MRI Neck can help evaluate the presence, size, location, and characteristics of masses or tumors in the neck region. It can provide valuable information to determine the nature of the mass or tumor, such as whether it is benign or malignant.
    3. Examination of blood vessels: MRI Neck can assess the blood vessels in the neck, including the carotid arteries and jugular veins. It can help identify any narrowing, blockages, or abnormalities in the blood vessels, which may be contributing to symptoms like dizziness, stroke risk, or other vascular conditions.

    Assessment of salivary glands and lymph nodes: MRI Neck can visualize the salivary glands, such as the parotid and submandibular glands, and the lymph nodes in the neck. It can help identify infections, inflammation, tumors, or other abnormalities affecting these structures
