The importance of MR imaging has become so vital that some doctors consider it an extension of their stethoscope. MRI provides the doctor with three-dimensional pictures of the spine’s soft tissues, such as the discs and nerves. Nerve compression, infection, and tumor are best diagnosed using MRI.
Although MRI is a wonderful tool, the scanner and equipment is very complex and expensive. However, New Health recognizes MRI is an important component to diagnosis and made the investment for its patients by making this advanced technology available on its main clinic campus.
